Backyard Colors

In this piece of iPaddery you can see some of the colorful foliage in my mother's back yard. I have heard that the bright red leaves belong to a plant called a "euonymus" but I don't have confirmation of that. Anyway the word "euonymus" is kinda cool, Greek and botanical and all. The bright yellow-green leaves in center belong to a catalpa sapling. This landscaping tree sheds pods and seeds which sprout weed trees all over the area which have to be removed. Nobody thought of that when they planted small catalpa trees in the front yards of these suburban ranch houses 60 years ago. Now the trees are huge. Nature has its revenge, sort of.
