Festival of Leaves, Week #5: Muscadine

Muscadines are a type of wild grape native to the southeastern and south-central U.S. The vines can be cultivated but often are found winding up and around trees in the woods.

Because we still are having temperatures in the 80s, leaves here are not changing colors very rapidly.  However, the muscadine vines in the pine trees have turned a brilliant yellow this week.

    1. Thank you! I wish we could get to the muscadines on the vines. They’re too high up.

    It’s been a great autumn for yellows and golds in western NC (where I live). Maybe now I’ll recognize a muscadine the next time I see one?

    1. Honestly, I only recognize it because the muscadine grapes fall onto our driveway. LOL
