Fall Today, Gone Tomorrow?

I enjoy fall colors as much as the next person, but I like to have a little time to enjoy them. This year seems to be moving along at a rapid pace. Everything I read says that the show is late to start this year but is expected to be shorter than usual.

So today’s post is a quick and short reminder to get out there if you’re going! These pictures are from yesterday (November 4th) in Roswell.  Rain forecast for mid-week will likely take down a lot of leaves in North Georgia.

If you’re looking to create more fall color in your landscape for next year, check out my 2012 post on Dependable Fall Color.

If you’d like to better guess what you’re seeing, see my earlier blog posts by leaf color:

Mockernut hickory (Carya alba)
Red maple (Acer rubrum)

Sassafras albidum
Smooth sumac (Rhus glabra)

  1. I believe you are right. One day last week, the leaves were turning, and then the rain started. Looks like you got to be out and about enjoying the colors.
