Southern Color

We have color in Oriental. Not Colorado color. Not New England color. The South has its own muted autumn.
Crape myrtles:



Knock-Out Roses:

Our neighbor had two large pine trees removed from this spot and put in a brilliant garden:

That sycamore again, from a different angle:

I love the look of a wet autumn road, scattered in leaves and pine straw.

  1. WOW! You have a wonderfully colorful village!

    Happy Holidays ~ FlowerLady

  2. You have A LOT of nice color, MK! I saw LOTS of that plant (six photos from the top) in Hawaii. I have one for a house plant and the poor thing is probably wondering where the humidity is. It's SO dry here!
    I love the colorful chairs, of course! xo

  3. Love all the colors you spotted (very creative, too) and those chairs are so cheerful!

  4. Very nice autumn color. First the colorful chairs made me smile. I like muted tones in fall as well as the bright colors and you are lucky that your flowers last so long.


Hello! I hope you leave a word ~ I will get back to it as soon as I can!
