Trees in Houston don't change too much, a few turn brown and few loose some leaves, but most just stay green.

Ours can depend on the year. This year we were fortunate to have color on our trees until Nov., but generally by mid-Oct. the winds have them blown off.

By April we generally have trees and bushes that are budding out, BUT this past spring I think it was nearly the end of May. Just very inconsistent here, but we have nothing but stix for trees about half the year.

Most of the trees here are evergreen fir and pine. Many of the shrubs are also evergreen but bloom in spring. This is the natural growth. The city and peoples' yards have some trees that change with the season. I noticed just about all the leaves gone off of these Dec.1st. By May 1st they'll have leaves.

I have this sinking feeling I won't see buds on my maple trees until Memorial Day this year! I'm thankful for the pine trees in my yards and around the neighborhood!

Well we have very weird weather lately. Just looking out the window, I see green pines surrounded by oaks that are bare, and oaks that have brown leaves clinging to them...Underbrush is deep green and new patches of green grass can be seen!

Usually we have this type weather hit in November and by late Jan or early Feb can see buds coming out on Spring flowering trees....In March, our trees can be quite pretty till we get that last frost that can be a killer but we dont' get this every year...

Last year, I know this is not on trees but it is amazing, dh brought me in a buttercup on January 12!

I believe we will have an early Spring here this year as well as the temps are so warm. By March there are young green leaves on most all the trees and last till mid-august when they start turning yellowish from lack of rainfall...September brings in teh color and last year the show was brilliant with golds, deep burgandys and yellows and oranges.....

February 15th: 98% Bare
March 15th: 70% Bare / 25% Blooming / 5% Fully Green
April 15th: 5% Bare / 35 % Blooming / 60% Fully Green
May 15th: 100% Fully Green
June 15th: 100% Fully Green
July 15th: 100% Fully Green
August 15th: 100% Fully Green
September 15th: 100% Fully Green
October 15th: 5% with Fall colors / 95% Fully Green
November 15th: 50% with Fall Colors / 15% Bare / 25% fully green
