the early tree

| No Comments

The maples around us were the first to start flowering in the spring. It seems they will be the first to start changing in the fall as well. Wanna watch?

Here's a picture I took of a maple on August 1st, shortly after we got back from our vacation in Germany. I was checking in on the progress of the keys and didn't notice any color changes in the leaves.


By August 16th, the wings on the keys had turned a golden brown and the green in the leaves had started to fade as well.



On August 26th, I spotted brown edges on some of the maple leaves.


And this morning, when I sent my boys off on their first day of school, there was even more brown.


Oh yes, change, it is a comin'.
