I guess we all know that 2020 is a whacky year. I didn't realize that our trees knew it too.
I mentioned in my last post that our maple trees are slow to color up this year. As long as we've had these lovely trees they have always been aglow by the last week in October.
This was last year on October 25th, 2019, in the front yard.The Full Moon Maple, the dogwood, and the viburnum were all in color.
And yes, it was raining.
This is October 25th, 2020.The Full Moon Maple is just getting a hint of color.
The viburnum, above, and the dogwood, below, are still green.
In the back yard, the maples and dogwood were also in full color in 2019.
This year, in 2020, they are still green.Well, I see in the photo that there is a hint of color. The maple seeds are a pretty pink.
The good thing is we still have all of that beauty to look forward too.
But like so much this year, it is a little strange.
