Autumn's over!

Opened the curtains this morning and our poor Elder tree has been stripped in the night Shocked it was covered in lovely autumn leaves when we went to bed last night - the poor thing only has half a dozen left now!

Camilla's Avatar Gosh that's quick FN when all leaves have left the tree, I can see next doors trees and also their Fig one and they still have all the leaves on them still.

Fennie's Avatar Little wind here today. Just beginning to get up now and the rain has started just when I have to go out. Very dark. The lights are all on. But still lots of lovely autumn colours. The walnut which is one of the first to lose its leaves is still mostly green. You think all the leaves on a tree would go at the same time, wouldn't you. But no - not the case at all.Very Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar We've had such a dry summer the tree just gave up and turned yellow very quickly.
Our hawthorn berries are almost purple this year they are so dark - never seen them like that in 20 years.

KitKatCot's Avatar It must be something about Elder trees. I've noticed that they have lost their leaves completely this year, before other trees.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar I don't think they liked the dry summer.
