Weekly Travel Theme: Foliage

Ailsa’s weekly travel theme focuses on foliage this week.  As Albertans only have about 5 months of foliage per year (May through September) if we’re lucky, we enjoy it while we can.  I love fall foliage (just keep hitting next to see plenty of examples), but lush greens fresh after a rain, or frost tipped leaves are just as fascinating as sweeping panoramas of glowing golds.

Lush greens glisten with raindrops after a tropical shower in Mexico.

These Hosta at the Reader Rock Garden in Calgary shimmer after an overnight shower.

These Sweetgum leaves near Baton Rouge, Louisiana glow in the afternoon sun.

A light frosting highlights these leaves and morning sun makes everything sparkle.

Early morning light highlights silvery leaves after a light frost.

The first snow delicately balances on fall coloured leaves and branches.
