Maples. Oaks. These are two of the trees we usually look to giving us the brilliant colors of Autumn. However, other plants are hibernating as well. Ground cover. Herbs. Bushes. Autumn colors can be found in more than just the boughs of stately trees. Take the plant in today's image. Pretty isn't it? It is poison oak ... or poison ivy. I can never remember which is which, just the old saying, "Leaves of three, let it be." While it does have nice Autumn colors, I wouldn't want to pick it for a dinner table's center piece.
