This is proof we DO get some fall color here in our area. I drive this street every day to take Nick to school. I was on my way home, after my PT appointment, and the sun was ahead of me so the color doesn't show quite as well as a couple days ago when it was overcast. The color really pops against white/gray clouds.
I was driving while I took these pictures, sshhh, don't tell the authorities.
These last two photos are on the street I live. The reddish tree is a Crepe Myrtle, they're always pretty in the fall. The other tree, still in the process of turning color, is a liquid amber tree - probably has another name but I don't know what it is. It's very pretty and directly in front of our house. There used to be many more of these trees on our street but folks have been removing them over the years. I guess they can be pretty invasive to sewer lines. They also drop round seed pods about the size of small walnuts.
And to think Marty drives several hours each way to get photos of fall color in the mountains, when all he has to do is step out the front door, but he prefers landscape/natural photography so I suppose man-planted trees in the 'burbs doesn't fit the criteria; I'll enjoy it just the same :)
