Leaves in trees already changing their color

I am noticing the trees are dropping leaves like crazy and when driving to work, occasionally viewing a vista of trees, the color change is already occurring. Of course the colors aren't 'great'!

And the falling pine needles are already 3 inches deep here in Kilgore.

Maybe it's the result of extreme stress caused by this extreme drought. Weird. Since I've being watered my lawn, seeds of bluebonnets have sprout and now I have 2-3" tall bluebonnet seedlings. I wonder if they'll bloom.

End of the world!! :D

Speaking of blooms, my Indian Hawthornes didn't bloom this spring but are thinking about blooming now!

I see a lot of trees losing leaves, but it just looks like they are dying to me, not hibernating. Especially the ones in the medians in the cities. I sure hope I'm wrong.
