Laura, are these Crepe Myrtle trees?  I did not know that they grow in the Northeast.  They are everywhere in Texas!

Laura - The vivid colors of those Crepe Myrtle trees is simply stunning!  I've always liked both those colors on the trees, but can't decide which one I like best.

I'm not sure what kind of trees those are, but I love the differrence in their color from yard to yard!
