October Portraits of
Shadblow Serviceberry

   

Serviceberry


The autumn colors of the Juneberry or Shadblow Serviceberry
(Amelanchier canadensis) range from gold & yellow,
to orange & red, being quite to the red side in October.

The shrub puts on quite a lovely mid-October show. Because
2004 had been a big caterpillar year, the leaves are a might chewed.

At October's end the leaves are very red,
but this display might not last long, as the first hard rain
helps the bush let go of all its leaves.


Serviceberry


Well, though it is often said that the bright red leaves
are not long-lasting on serviceberrries, because the first
hard rain can beat the leaves from the branches,
this early November photo was taken after a three day deluge
that had flood-watches for local rivers.
Yet the serviceberry is still gorgeously leafed.


Serviceberry


October a year later (2005) again provides lovely shades of red
& mahogany, the colors being a bit different from one year to
the next but invariably pleasing.
