My Indian Summer crepe myrtle though, near the back door, has been offering all this over the past couple of weeks. Now after a sudden change and drop in temps, alongwith strong winds over the past couple of days and nights, most all the leaves have dropped since I took these photos.
So I've been working with one of my photos tonight and making some creative changes. Erased the original background away from the leaves, and gave them a watercolour effect.
Going to the background now; that was given a weave texture; then the watercoloured-leaves overlayed again.

And while on a nature's bounty topic, how about these nasturtiums that have sprouted up between the retainer wall blocks?! Survival of the fittest... no way will I be tugging them out of there.
Will be interesting to see if they can make it to flowering stage like some other's I've grown in the past...
