THE COLOUR OF LATE SUMMER

tree

This is the tree that stands outside the old tabac opposite the village school.  I don’t know what kind of tree it is but in August it was smothered in these lovely pink flowers.

  4. It's a crepe myrtle. They seem to be particularly noticeable in the Touraine this year.
