An Exceptional Tree With Bright Colors
Austin, Texas is splattered with a gold yellow this year. The bright oranges and reds are muted and the leaves have fallen off many of the local trees. Last Fall, 2009, the colors were exceedingly colorful, beyond anything we had seen in years. Lack of sufficient rain in the last two months has influenced our crop of color in the area. There are more deep maroon colors and yellow brown shades of color in the area this year.
Driving down a neighborhood street today, I saw a tree worthy of a picture. It was not half bare or dull in color, but full of leaves with bright yellow and orange and red. It stood out like a neon sign against the dull greens and brown of the area. I drove around the block to take a picture of this noteworthy tree.
It was a sunny day today, but this tree shone on its own. The hue of the leaves screamed out for attention. As I drove past the area and on to my destination, I could not find another tree with any large amount of color. December begins this coming week and Fall should be ending. Is there a chance that this next cold front on Monday will spark some more color in the area? I hope so. Fall is my favorite time of year!
