Fall already?

I noticed a couple of weeks ago the sumac was turning red near my house. Yesterday I noticed some of the trees turning yellow. Guess the drought must being having an effect on them. I'm not ready for fall quite yet.

I don't think we should even be talking about it yet......
Shhhhh.... Maybe if we ignore it, it'll go away.

Definitely the drought. No indications of an early fall by temperature.

My backyard is covered with leaves that have been falling from a large cottonwood tree due to the lack of rain. Yesterday I was sitting in my backyard counting the leaves as they floated down to the ground (it was a pretty lazy Sunday for awhile there). It looks very "fallish" back there . . .

Counting leaves, that's a new one. Best get busy doing some weeding and put your mind to good use.

I think summer, the glass is half full, not half empty.

Fall can wait.......I know what follows it......

Over the weekend I was driving through Apple Valley and noticed some kids in the front yard of a house raking all the leaves that had fallen. At first I thought how nice it was that the kids were outside playing -- then it hit me that trees should NOT be dropping all their leaves this time of year!! Scary...

We have lost the leaves on the boxelders and horse chestnut. I could rake but at this point the leaves may be acting as mulch so I'm leaving them in place.
