Crepe Myrtle Colors

The crepe myrtle trees alongside our home, the Frog & PenguINN, have shed nearly all their leaves providing lots of autumn colors.

Some leaves display their summer colors as long as  possible.

The autumn leaves of red and gold . . .”

What a lovely set of pics, I think I need to have some. Missing the colors here, still some trying to hold on.

So pretty! Love all the colors. The last of the leaves are finally all down on the ground now here. We have to rake one more time to finish things up. :)

These photos always remind me of how wonderful nature can be at any time of the year. Just gorgeous!

Goodness, you still have some nice colors there. We are near Savannah in a hotel tonight. Getting out of Florida we didn't see much color because there aren't many deciduous trees there. We hope to see more tomorrow in the mountains.

Thanks Mona, appreciate the visit and compliment too!

Hey Steve, wish I could send you some of these colors to brighten your day! But, these are nearly gone thanks to some brisk winds over the weekend.

Agreed Denise, nature is truly amazing and colorful too.

Thanks Christer!

Hi Lois, I'll be looking forward to reading about and seeing photos from your road trip back to Ohio. Safe travels to you and Kjell.

Hi Susie, after this weekend we will be out of colors too :-(
