Ok....at my house the trees out front change color and fall by the end of October or earlier...however, the trees in the back are later. I have a two layer approach in my yard and I love it. Currently the crepe myrtles are orange, the oaks are deep red and everything else is a shade between green and gone. Each time I walk past the windows I'm stopped by how beautiful my yard is in fall.... Let's not talk about the dead things the frost and freeze have left behind....thank goodness they are few in this yard.
PS...check out the corner....the roses are still in bloom....ha!
