Sunday Stills: Landscapes ( Fall Foliage)

The Tamarack or Larix laricina are peak this week here in Minnesota.  They are a deciduous evergreen.  They like the northern climate.  Their needles turn gold and fall off, so they look dead all winter, but next spring they will turn green again with a whole new set of needles.  Check out more Fall Landscapes at Sunday Stills:)

  7. I see we did it - yesterday on the way to the small town I stopped a few times for Mom to take pics -- I found these after I dropped her off --- I knew someday we would catch the same opportunity! They are beautiful....

  8. EVERgreens that are not ever green? Never knew that before. How interesting. Do they also shed cones, too?
    Pretty photo. :)

  14. Looks like a typical Minnesota road but in fall foliage. I have yet to see your state in the fall. I use to always have to return and get back to school. Great photo.

  15. Lisa, Perhaps I should have said that it is a deciduous tree that looks like an evergreen. I believe that all the cones are shed too..just not every year..every other year I believe.. and the cones are tiny..:)

  16. Love how you've captured them in that golden moment. We have Bald Cypress along the river here that are conifers that are deciduous, too. I think these kind of trees are very primitive and evolved way before evergreens.
