I read on "the internet" that trees begin losing their leaves as a result of dwindling daylight, and not necessarily a function of temperature.
In the Midwest, leaves falling to the ground are accompanied by light weight sweater sets, maybe a fleece jacket, crisp air, and visits to the apple orchard.
But down here, our leaves are falling already, some in major waves. Plenty of trees are turning yellow and red already as well. And yesterday it was 90 and humid.
This time, I think "the internet" was right!
