Hardwoods don’t have a monopoly on fall color. Sometimes, you just have to look a little more closely at the landscape.

TORTOISE SHELL -- No doubt the reddish spots are some kind of fungal disease, but when backlit, this blade of Johnsongrass looks almost like tortoiseshell.
PURPLE -- Johnsongrass seedheads mellow into a deep mauve.
COLD COLOR -- High altitude ice crystals are the prism for this rainbow.
FALL FLOWERS -- Late purple asters live up to their name, still blooming in early October.
