Recently I was surprised when I read that fall colors in Europe are mostly yellow. Here’s the link to the article about this: http://www.livescience.com/5749-fall-colors-europe.html.

At this time of the year in New Jersey we see many fall colors: yellow, orange, red, pink, and hues of all kinds. Following is typical red foliage on a Bradford Pear tree at our house.
