Another vine I walked past last Day Off on my way to the D-bridge decorates a tree beside the M-cove.

Red vines are the sure sign that summer is past in this neck of the woods, before other greens even think of other color.

Red vines are trusted to tell me when I need to ready the coats n warm blankets, n give me such pretty pics to play with each autumn.

It's hard to believe it's autumn, but the red vines alert us to that.

Lynn, the weather girl said Autumn officially begins this Friday, but we've been really cold already! I wonder what the vines color changing trigger is- maybe the shorter daylight hours?

Oh, Snaggle you have such an eye for light. That second "real" vines photo is so so pretty. I love how the light comes through.

Would love to be there to see the red vines in person with you.

And "Red Vines" are apparently like Twizzlers? I heard them mentioned in an Aimee Mann lyric.

And did you know the reds are there all along, but when the chlorophyl high-tails it back inside the trunk we get to see the brilliance. I learned that only a year or so ago at Kelly's school.

These especially remind me of looking through kaleidoscopes.

JanF, N they're not even the Poison Ivy ones. I think of them as trees wearing red boas... The vines may be the best color we get this year- the rest of the trees are dropping green leaves from hurricane damage- they won't be around for color changing.
Yes, I've known about the underlying colors since high school biology. That's how "Red Oaks" get their name too. Thanks

Cloudia, Hello to you over there in Paradise.

Gran Annie, I just like how they remind me of different things to do nothing with the original-especially the character faces. I have a kaliediscope thing on the puter, but its a way busier image. This would be that with 2 petals, cut in half, after re-texture n re-color. Glad you enjoy them.

Does anyone else see that dude in image 3 with the blue hat holding a Bamboo rod in each hand?

how come they did not teach us that in our high school about the reds. Or maybe i jsut forgot!
Red boas is a great image for those!

JanF, Yes, but that same Nun (science teacher) claimed there'd never be a volcanic eruption out side Hawaii in the USA, a few years before Mt St Helens blew... I had argued it could happen.
Even teachers cam't be perfect...
