We’re seeing red in Carpenter Country this week, thanks to a brief cold snap that convinced the plants fall had finally arrived.
The Loropetalum, also known as Chinese fringe-flower, must have been anxious for summer to end, because she shifted to red very quickly.
Even though the cold spell lasted several days, some blossoms didn’t get the status update.
How quickly do you adapt when seasons change?
