A Tree for all Seasons

I forgot to post this picture earlier, but just had to share it with you all.  The fall color on my Crepe Myrtle this year was just fabulous.  It looks like it’s on fire with all that orange and yellow.  This has to be the best I’ve ever seen it look in the autumn.  Just another reason for this  tree to be  in my garden regardless of the season.  From the fresh green foliage in spring to the hot pink blossoms in summer to even the bare limbs in winter which shows off the mottled bark.   It’s definitely a tree for all seasons as I’ve said in a previous post two years ago.   And if you’re interested you can read that previous post  here.   Hope everyone has a nice weekend.   🙂

  4. It is always satisfying to find a plant that is attractive for most of the year, especially during the winter. It has lovely coloured foliage.
    It has just snowed again over here so it looks like a lot of us have the same view 🙂

    I agree EG, it’s a big bonus if it has winter interest as well. Thanks. Yeah I’m tired of the snow already and we’re expecting more this weekend. 😉


  5. It is a great plant to have in the garden. Yours are looking wonderful.

    Definitely Janet, thank you! 🙂

    Thanks Balisha, glad you enjoy it as much as I do. 🙂


  7. The crepes here have been pretty too. I walked a bit ago and noticed some of the pears have not lost their leaves and still have beautiful fall color. So funny–in Texas fall colors happens in December!
    Have a good weekend Racquel.

    It must be nice to have fall color in December, all we have is the color white now. 😉 Have a nice weekend Linda!


  8. It’s a beauty! Talk about a long season of interest, that tree has it all!
