November 18, 2011 – Fall Colors
The term Fall Colors might bring to mind the colorful leaves, oranges, yellows and reds in places like New England. But in California, our fall colors are different. The autumn palette is based in the golden hills. The tress offer the contrast of rich earthy greens finished off with the complement of the rich red of manzanita bark. The bark that in most species is polished smooth, a rich terra cotta color. The bark so smooth that it could almost make you believe that mysterious forest dwellers come out at night to polish the trees. The manzanita is California’s other red wood.
