More Fall color without Jack Frost
September 28, 2014 2 Comments
Fall colors in the Ladybird Lane area continue to intensify and old Jack Frost hasn’t even visited us yet, thank goodness, although it was has been down to 38 degrees Fahrenheit a couple of times already last week. The locust trees and what I believe are sugar maple trees are especially gorgeous right now. We have a huge silver maple in the backyard and it never has much color to it. Why anybody plants a silver maple is beyond me. Ours is big, messy and shades out my veggie garden. But on the street what I’m calling sugar maples are really intense this year.
