Backyard Almanac: Tamarack Time
Some blustery days have torn a lot of the lovely leaves from their branches. The leaf-peeping days of autumn are winding down, but if you're still hankering for some vibrant colors, take to the swamps. "The tamarack show is just spectacular right now," says Larry Weber. Tamaracks have needles that change to a striking yellow before falling.
The beauty of the landscape will be on full display over the next month - a time that Larry Weber refers to as Aut-Win (Autumn and Winter). With the leaves off of the trees and the snow yet to cover the ground, this time of year offers a unique opportunity to take in the topography of woodlands.
