    Default Best Brilliant Autumn Colors in Years

    The colors in Metro D are absolutely vivid this year, the brightest and most colorful in years. Everywhere I go I see this spectacular show of nature, Nature's way of giving us a treat before the kick in the teeth of winter. Get out and enjoy it.

    From this morning's walk in Farmington Hills' Heritage Park.

    I wonder if it's because we had such a wet spring and summer.

    Colors tend to have to do with fall conditions. Best colors theoretically come from sunny days and cool nights (promotes the anthocyanins that produce the redder/purpler colors) Of course, you might have more/bigger leaves from a wet spring.

    I've been wondering. Does anybody know what the best trees for fall colors to plant are in our area? I really like the idea of having aspens but they dont seem practical as a yard tree.

    Oak, Serviceberry, Maple trees. Burning bush are so pretty in the fall too. I have a Kousa Dogwood tree, doesn't get huge like the oak or maple. Blooms pink flowers in late spring and turn deep red/purple in the fall.

    Aspen will only give you gold; pretty but a lot of trees will do that. I think birch is very close to aspen for color and it has the white bark.

    Thanks for the beautiful photos! Not much fall color here in the desert; I do miss it.
