My pale pink Crape Myrtle in the back yard still has some panicles of bloom and the leaves remain green. The watermelon color is turning orange but is not as brilliantly colored as these. They will likely lose all leaves before much color is displayed.
Many large trees in our landscape are oaks that are either evergreen or lose their leaves without turning brilliant colors. Some turn brown, many hang on and fall a few at a time throughout the fall to the disgust of He-who-mows. Across the highway, trees are still green and the color feature is muscadine grapevines that climb high into the trees, looking like yellow festoons in the woods.
Gulf Fritillaries, bees and the last of the Tithonia.
