Purple sourwood trees in October

 

In the foothills the sourwoods and dogwoods have been purple for a week or so, but most of the oaks and maples remain stubbornly green.  As is typical the yellow poplars have already turned yellow and dropped most of their leaves – the gray-barked tree in the center of the picture is a poplar.
