For awhile I thought we were only going to have brown leaves that dropped off--no beautiful color this year, but I was wrong. This has been a very strange season. We went from 90 degree weather to 50 degree weather in one day! So not much wonderful fall weather in the 60's and 70's.
By this time most years the leaves would all be off the trees. I must say after the last 2 rains we have had they are quickly disappearing, but yesterday was a beautiful sunny day--in the 50's so I took a walk and captured a few photos of the gorgeous trees before all the leaves are gone. A feast for the eyes!
Two of my Japanese maples are spectacular!! The dogwood next to the maple is beautiful, too!
I took the photo below of the tree in the front of my mom's house. It lost all these leaves in the rain and wind overnight Wednesday. The lawn had been mowed the day before I took the photo.
