Fall colors...

We don't get the stunning fall foliage colors that parts of the country does, but some of the leaves around here are beginning to show tints other than green. The Crepe Myrtles now have hints of yellow.

Young oaks with colorful leaves.

The same type of oak.

While my load of manure was being delivered, I noticed the walk into the woods was starting to be carpeted with the colors of autumn.

And, I have to admit, this is my favorite fall vista at the moment. It rained overnight and brought down a few more leaves from the Laurel Oak. Of course, the fact that the raised bed now contains Johnnies might have something to do with my liking it. And I absolutely LOVE the table and chairs, which were a Mother's Day present from Kirstin and Julie this year.

Have a beautiful day!

Some of this area's best fall color comes from the foliage of Crape Myrtles, and they have just now started to color up.

Dear Ruth, I don't think the fall colors are so vivid this year ... probably because of the drought we experienced. I love your table and chairs, too. Pam x
