Substantial fall color starting appearing around here this week. Many trees are still completely green but driving around today I saw lots of color. This is normal, for here, trees turn color at varying times. This makes for a less spectacular peak but prolongs the color which I think I prefer. And having green mixed in is ok.
The picture is of a tree across the small pond behind my condo. I took it last Monday(with a zoom setting) from a small second story balcony on my unit. This tree tends to turn early and had already lost many leaves by today. The tree on the right is on my side of the pond.
