Rain-Saturated Colors

A couple of posts past, I ran these photos of iridescent-peach leaves in my garden. This is a dwarf cherry bush, a hybrid from Miller Nurseries in Canandaigua, NY, that we grew from root stock:

I swear that the leaves are brighter than usual this fall -- perhaps because we had a summer that was not too hot, not too dry, just right for growing things. Look at these hosta leaves!
