Fall has fallen?

Hey all,
Here in Benton Cty, dogwoods are pink leaved and I saw a maple turning purple yesterday too. I've been too cold in the mornings too!
My Brugs are drooping and by gosh, it feels like October here.
Any chance of Indian summer saving my figs? or, early winter?

You must be feeling a cold front that I didn't get. Benton County is not that far from me, but it has been hot and humid at my house. The walnut trees are starting to turn a yellow green and the leaves have been falling for a while in my yard. I could use a rain. They have forecast rain the last two weeks, but all I got is .2 inch total.

I noticed my neighbors tree was turning yellow and roping leaves last weekend. I was just hoping it was because of the ice damage it had sustained.

I'm very jealous! I love the fall colors...Hope everyone will keep posting pictures...and that it is a good year for colors. Should be judging from all the rain, I'm thinking...

helen, our weather in the Springfield area has been like yours. We are extremely dry, but have had some cooler weeks.

I am ready for fall!

the extended time with all the flowers and not having to "hurry" and get ready for ole man winter.

We had some cool days and lots of rain, but it is humanid today and in the upper 80's. I dread winter, because all I have to do is rake leaves. I do like trees when they change color.

Can't you mow your leaves? When you chop them up they take up much less space.

I heard that the Farmers' Almanac is predicting a record cold winter..I certainly hope they are wrong! At least, maybe it won't come early. I've seen lots of trees dropping leaves near us but we had such a wet, cool spring I think they weren't prepared for the lack of rain and 100+ temps we saw a while back. It didn't last long, thank goodness..but summer's not over yet..
