After a week of clouds, rain, even a nor'easter, it was great to wake up to an actual SUNrise.
The leaves are at their peak this week, though it has been hard to enjoy it in the rain. Yesterday, the rain stopped, and the sun came out in the afternoon. I grabbed my camera to try to capture some of the color. I am sure these leaves seem dull to many of you.A young Crape Myrtle in yellow and a 4 year old Crape myrtle wearing red. I remember well the autumns in Maine and the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, and the awesome reds we do not get here mixed in with all the other beautiful colors. But, I keep reminding myself, I have camellias and azaleas here. Anyway, I thought I would share the big, bright, and beautiful as well as some of the little surprises of color here and there.

A few of the summer flowers are still blooming, unhurt by the frost a couple of weeks ago.
Some of the winter plants are up or starting to come up. I moved this one last year.
This is under a pink fall camellia.
The tomatoes are still doing just fine on the carport next to the greenhouse.
