Some fellow bloggers have been posting about wonderful seasonal fall colors in their area(s). We have longingly admired them, yet fall color has not yet reached a large portion of the VA eastern shore, except on the calendar.
Sure, we’ve had a few recent nights when temps dipped into the low 40s. There was even an early morning frost last week, but the predominant color here remains green. Here’s a view of crepe myrtles at the side of the house taken late this afternoon.
Leaf raking is still a couple of weeks (or more) away. Eventually, these leaves will turn to beautiful yellow and red colors around Thanksgiving. Our garden and yard flowers also seem to be thinking of another season. Here’s what some flowers in the wildflower meadow looked like this earlier today.
Not to be outdone in the colorful department were these blooms in front and back yard pots. Apparently also enjoying a rejuvenation in cooler weather.
We’re looking forward to MORE fall colors, hopefully before winter starts.
