Last year there was an early freeze and light snowfall in the beginning weeks of October. We bemoaned the death of Fall last year on our Denver property management blog. Looking back on the entry done on 10/22/18, we described what basically happened again this year, but at a week offset. This year the freeze and snowfall came right at 10/10/19, which after the brief thaw and the snow melted, left a graveyard of brown, dead, shriveled plants and flowers. Unfortunately, this has happened again this year, but there might be hope for some trees who managed to make it through. The ones that are nice and green have high hope for turning brilliant shades of yellow and red. The ones that are fully leafed out still, but they are brown and dusty, will not stand up to the next storm or even the next high wind day. We’ve seen leaves already start piling up street after street. However, it seemed Mother Nature hedged her bets, and there are still brilliant fall displays on 7th Avenue and University, with trees that are making their final stand against the early cold winds. The same has happened in the mountains, and there are very small yellow trees and red trees still visible. If you are tree peeping in the mountains, you may have to go this weekend to get any tail ends of what still may be there. But this weekend will be great for city tree viewing. I recommend you go out now if you are interested in this sort of thing. Seeing the fall colors against the earlier sunset is something everyone should do in Denver. There seems to be some weeks left in Fall for everyone to enjoy, so take advantage of that before the snowfall increases and the daily temperatures drop and stay there on average.
