NOT QUITE FALL YET



My friend Wanda was talking about the first few Fall leaves drifting onto her balcony.

I am noticing a few leaves in our own back yard too.

But

The Crepe Myrtle trees are blooming and adding some color to a very hot Summer.




I'm not sure what this tree in our backyard is called.

I was going to take a few pictures of the one branch that is beginning to turn from lush green to dry brown.

I guess some sort of buggy critter thought the lush green leaves were pretty delicious too.

His design made me forget all about the "Fall" leaves.

ENLARGING will show this trail much more clearly.

Have a terrific weekend everybody.

Hmmm, an artistic bug! The crepe myrtles have been blooming here, too. Now they are just a bit around the bend. But no signs of fall yet, gladly!

HaHa...eating his way through the menu. How cute. Bet he has a full tummy.

Your crepe myrtle is beautiful.

Those fluffy white blooms are lovely, I don't think they grow here.
