It Won't Be Long!

I knew this day would come eventually, but it is always hard to see this mighty Japanese Maple shed it's beautiful leaves this time of year. To me, it symbolizes that fall is almost over.  This year, we had a good run.  Usually, by Thanksgiving week the leaves are starting to shed or they are already gone.  Not this year.  I am thankful for the long run. Soon, I will have my husband put together a video that shows the progression of the change of color of the tree. I will continue to chronicle it until the tree is bare.  

A Beautiful Blanket of Fall Color

Though it is hard to watch the tree go dormant for the winter, the color that is dropping right now is amazing and beautiful to see.  When I lived in California, a good Santa Ana wind would knock off all the dead brown leaves off the trees. Nothing pretty to look at! But it is different here.  We get everything from deep purple, red, orange and yellow, nothing brown!  My favorite leaves are the variegated type that have different colors in the leaf.

I can smell Autumn dancing in the breeze.  The sweet chill of pumpkin and the crisp sunburnt leaves.

Hi Sheri- this is our first fall back in Houston and Larry and I have enjoyed seeing the different colors of the leaves. That picture of all the colors of your leaves is beautiful.

Morning Sheri.

Other than evergreens around my area, all the leaves are gone.  A high of 43º, today, a heat wave with a high of 53º for next Saturday

Such a beautiful tree and I think it is still beautiful with its leaves on the ground.

Hi Grant Schneider - I went back and checked another year and saw that it was around Dec 17th that our maple was finally bare.

Thanks so much Ron and Alexandra Seigel.

It should be fun to see the final output of all the pics.  I started this on Oct 29th. I only missed one day due to travel.

Hi James Dray

It is a little cooler in your area. I hope you don't see a lot of snow this season.

Hi Brian England

It is always a pretty blanket of fallen leaves. We won't clean them up until all the leaves fall. Maybe two more clean-ups.

Sheri, I must have missed these trees, have seen yellow leaves, and was still shocked there WERE leaves.   Ours in Denver have long been gone.   SOOO looking forward to meeting you and Rick tomorrow for lunch!   Now if I could just pronounce the name of the shopping center!

Good morning Sheri - What a beautiful ending to a great and wonderful Fall 2019! This is a good example of what buyers who buy in winter can expect a year from now. The colors are just beautiful!!!

Hello Sherri - you know California trees, like many of its people, are quite sensitive to weather.  Calm wind reports are rarely heard in the local news....  Enjoy the atmosphere and the landscape.

Hi Joan Cox - There are a few trees that turn red but most turn orange or yellow. We had a wonderful time at lunch yesterday!

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI, MRP - Thank you. I figure by next week the leaves will be off. I do have a lot of fall pictures of the area to show buyers.

So true, Michael Jacobs.  I remember it well. I lived in the wind-tunnel and watched all the brown leaves flying through the air.

Hi Sheri:

I love your take on the end of fall, and the photos you’ve shared - what stunning leaf color.

We still have plenty of colorful leaves on the trees although they are dwindling. And the next rain will likely speed that up.

OH, I'm the same way, Sheri - I hate to see the leaves fall but, the splendor of color that the Japanese Maples leave behind makes it worth it! Watching the new buds and leaves blossoming again gives us something delightful to look forward to in the early spring.
