This year, however since we had a lot of rain and we have yet to have a hard freeze which normally kills all living things left outside--because the day prior to a freeze would have been 93 degrees--our trees are absolutely STUNNING with gorgeous colors!!
I thought I was going crazy trying to remember ANY time in my life that I have seen this kind of artistic display on the foliage, but then we all started to put two & two together and realized that if the plants don't FREEZE in late October plus they have had lots of water then the outcome is beautiful leaves in fiery red, golden yellow, mahogany and blazing orange set against brilliant greens! Since we aren't really used to this color show at all, I HAD to take pictures to remember how mesmerized I've been every time I drive somewhere looking at the trees lining the streets. I know many of you live in areas that have fall foliage that is breathtaking every year, but we do not, so I have soaked in these gorgeous colors!!
