The best fall foliage in our neck of the woods


Each fall this grove of trees near town turns lovely shades of red and orange.  Most of the other trees are just beginning to show yellow or brown, but this group does their best to push out the rouge.  We don't get the fantastic colors of the north (must be due to our lack of maple trees) but here in Texas, when it comes to seasons changing, we'll take whatever we can get.

Me too, I go around just looking for one red leaf. It is hard when you don't have the color like on the East Coast, not to mention we don't get the cold either. Do you get snow? We don't just fog. Thanks for the pictures!

Yes, we'll get snow (last year we got 10 inches at once!) Usually just an inch or two or ice. But we do get some winter! :)

We are certainly in the region for fall colors, but our trees are not exactly cooperating this year. A little gold and red, but mostly, still green. I may have to go scouting around town here soon to get my fix. Thanks for sharing your pictures -- wonderful!

Those are beautiful trees. It's so funny what we take for granted. I didn't realize that many places don't have a lot of fall red. Just assumed everyone had a bit of red out there. Rouge is just as good :)
