Autumn in the southeast

Fall has finally made its way to the southeast, and the leaves are beginning to turn. The small maple tree in my front yard is first, with its gorgeous display of yellow and orange... although part of the leaves haven't decided to commit yet and remain green.
The nandina...
...and the pyrocanthus have burst forth with red berries, adding a bright splash around the house. Even the dogwood trees are turning a rusty red.
My neighbors' trees have begun a spectacular show...

although some have yet to chime in.
Up the hill there is a brilliant scarlet bush, contrasting with the yellow-green of the evergreens behind it.
Time to make the house as colorful as the world around it!
