The foliage has been somewhat disappointing this year. Usually my huge maple in back is a gorgeous yellow and this year it is brown and leaves are falling crispy. this is the same with many maples in the area. I hope it will recover for next fall. 82 here today at 4 p.m. Not complaining as the furnace hasn't kicked on once this fall so far.

My ash trees are between beautiful gold and bare. I noticed on the way to Unity yesterday that a lot of birch and poplar are yellow already. They're usually the last to turn and drop.

Is this because there was less rainfall this summer? Here in NY, we did have a summer drought. The leaves have begun turning much earlier than usual, but the colors are looking beautiful so far. Fortunately the deluge of water earlier in September seems to have at least helped the foliage!

We've had above average rain fall this year. The hot spell was very dry but overall, more rain.

Oh boy, winter is coming, just stacked 3 cords of firewood, raking leaves, tuning up the snowblower, trying to find my winter boots, my metal hip is seizing up, 3/4 of the town is leaving for Florida, otherwise I'm really looking forward to the 4 foot drifts and will try to beat last years record for the number of times I had to snowblow my way out to the road.
Say---just when is the first day of spring?

Default sign of a cold winter

You can tell it is going to be a cold winter when groundhogs rip apart your cushions and steal the stuffing to line their dens!!!

Kracer, you are so good to provide for the little devils!

A little contrary to your industrious rodents, my neighbor, a wise one who has lived & observed things right around here for 76 years, sezs: the deer are eating apples now; if it's going to be a difficult winter, they will refrain from early apple grazing, saving them instead for harder times ahead.

Thoughts on this, anyone?

I don't have any deer eating apples yet. It's late. They're usually here as soon as they hit the ground. They're here, they're just not cleaning up apples or getting into the corn yet.
