Up here in this cesspit, I've been seeing a few branches changing here & there, but nothing like in years past. For the past several years we had trees start to turn during the 3rd week of August! This year we are a few weeks past that, but not half the amount of changing trees. No idea why. I did notice that the pumpkin & tomato plants died back quickly after Irene passed through.
Leaves changing is always a depressing sight for me. I like fall, but I honestly hate winter about as much as my state government.
