Fall color has been disappointing. After all the rain and good weather all summer I really expected a spectacular fall, and it's been dull.
|This is the prettiest tree in the neighborhood, but not it's usual glory.|
Leaves are dull and brown, not red and yellow. Many of the trees that I count on from year to year have just faded this year. Even the Bradford pears didn't do their red-kissed Marilyn impression.
|My favorite tree every year. It's owner let it grow up in the same spot as the shrub, which is evergreen, so we always get this pretty two-tone for a couple of weeks. Not so nice the rest of the year.|
Boring, boring, boring. Guess it's Mother Nature's way of reminding us we can't have it all every year. We need to be thankful for the summer we had and wait for a great fall some other year.
