I don't know about your area but the Lord has been real busy painting in ours. Despite the rain fall defecate we experienced this summer our fall foliage are just magnificent. According to those who know this area better than we say one reason is the area has not experienced it’s first frost yet and the leafs have not fallen.. Also this just isn’t the best place for color anyway. It’s simple, this area lacks deciduous trees, trees that loose leaves in winter. Not based on anything scientific, but maybe half the trees in this area of Texas are evergreens and because of this those that change their color really stand out..
Sandy and I’ve been out driving around in Northeast Texas this last week and have seen some glimpses of color along the road. Not really solid color, just spots of yellow and red here and there. Hope you enjoy.
Hwy 259 from Lone Star to Longview.
FM1844 and Hwy 529
When we got back I suggested to Sandy that we pick up her mom and head toward Lake O’ The Pines and Jefferson TX. Unfortunately it was later in the evening and their was a cloud cover put we did get to see some foliage.
These are taken off FM 729 toward the lake. The colors were not as crisp as you can see but we fell her mom enjoyed the outing as she was good at telling us what trees we were seeing the different colors. Lets see dogwood, sweet gum, hickory nut, any many others that Sandy and I had no clue as to what they were.
Until next time….MtnAire Travlers.
