The bright red fruits of the American Ash are in full display at the higher elevations. This Mountain Ash lives at over 5,000 feet on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The Black Birch is beginning to change to brilliant yellow.
The Catawba Rhodo is beginning to turn some of her leaves to yellow.
The Fraser Magnolia has already placed her fruits and some leaves on the forest floor. The leaves not on the forest floor are beginning to look a little chewed. There are so many late summer insects eating their fill. Be sure to open those windows and go outside and listen to the insect music.
