Challenge #3 Answered

Y’know, it’s OK to post something about your trees; truly it is.  Anyway, my shagbark hickory is now naked.  The Siberian or Chinese elm is about 80% leafless; the American beech in the backyard has lost its crown (strange how that tree loses its leaves from the top down) and the remaining leaves are almost all copper-colored now.  I haven’t paid attention to the mulberry tree in the back, but that’s probably ready for winter now too.  We’ve seen many windy and cool days this fall which made up for such a dry summer.  I was pleasantly surprised at the plethora of color.

Oak leaves in my second backyard (captured mid-October).

So, what did you find?  Quick, before all the leaves are gone.
