Fall colors

Does anyone remember in the past that crepe myrtles turned this lovely color of orange in the fall? Maybe I'm brain dead, but I don't ever remember it before. They are so lovely.

The crepe myrtle are beautiful here too but for some reason ours are still green. I don't know what color the leaves are going to change to.
