The trees in East Texas have reached their peak of fall glory and are now quickly losing their leaves in the rainy days and north winds. However, as I enjoyed the fall color on my local travels, I noticed at least one type of tree that doesn't just turn one color. It turns at least three colors!
My parents say it may be an ornamental pear tree. I don't know. If you do, let me know. All I know is, its leaves turn various colors of orange, red, and gold and it is beautiful. Photos just don't do it justice.
By the way, this tree stands in a Whataburger parking lot where it was watching me buy my bacon and cheese taquito and large unsweet tea with extra ice. A girl has to charge up before wrapping gifts all day!
I like to think the tree says to itself, "There are so many pretty fall colors that I can't choose just one. So I will turn every color!" You go, tree. My kind of gal.
