… some of the trees are starting to turn color and I’ve seen leaves already littering the ground. A few of the maple trees on my walking route have tinges of red already. I must admit I did a double-take when I saw the green leaves laced with bright red!
Then, just down the road, there was a pair of lawns covered in these skinny and wilted leaves you see in the above picture. I’ve never seen leaves that looked quite like that, but there they were – some still alive, and some dead … the curled-up and withered vestiges of the bright-green leaves which took forever to grace the trees thanks to a coolish Spring. I’m betting the other leaves will soon follow suit.
Yesterday I heard the long-range weather forecast from NOAA and the entire nation will endure this heatwave well into October. I say “ugh” to that.
The weather report is often accompanied by the song “Heat Wave”– it was funny six weeks ago, but now … maybe not so much.
In the meantime, I am trudging on daily … walking and writing a little less and whining a little more.
