These bushes are called Burning Bushes and I had never seen them before moving to Colorado.  During most of the year they are simply just bushes, but in the fall they turn the most glorious color red, a sight to behold.  Always reminds me of the biblical Burning Bush, in a figurative sense.  You all know that the trees are one of the things I miss most about northern California but this year I have been blessed to witness the most glorious fall here.  Having these bushes in my back yard helps when I think about Crepe Myrtles, Pistache trees and of course Maples in Ca. and I will admit I did a lot of whining the first year we were here but not this year.
I hope your weekend is filled with the wonder of nature.
Blessings, Noreen

  2. We planted 5-6 of those along the side of our front yard ... between us and our neighbours and just love the beautiful red colour in the fall.

  3. We're in San Francisco right now experiencing a different kind of Fall. Makes me miss the Ozarks' colors much like you miss CA's Fall. I bet the Aspens are pretty right now! Love the Burning Bushes. Blessings.

  4. There is a whole corner fenceline of Burning Bushes close to us that has been one of my favorite places to see in the fall for years. Sadly, this year it looks about 1/3
    of them have died, but they are still stunning.

  8. I love these bushes too--We had them at our last house and I have to admit to being a bit annoyed by them because they seemed so "generic" and then the fall came and my thoughts about them changed. (I always thought of the Biblical burning bush too!)

  9. I love burning bushes - one of the few red touches we get here in the fall. We have had a beautiful fall this year, I am really enjoying it.
