The fabulous 120's!!



fig. 129: the red rectangle fungus sucks all the moisture out of its unfortunate host.



fig. 128: shorter days and cooler nights can act almost like poison to some leaves,
coursing through their veins and hastening their inevitable demise.




fig. 127: late summer/early fall.



fig. 126: the eastern cottonwood is much more 
"Pennsylvania Dutch" than its western cousin.



fig. 125: certain leaves fight against aging, others embrace it wholly.



fig. 124: the Japanese Zelkova is susceptible to a blight of geometric precision.



fig. 123: in east facing gardens, clover leaves will become more ornamental.
