The changing leaves

The leaves are changing colour every day now. The green is slowly replaced by other colours as the amount of daylight diminishes in the northern hemisphere. Last weekend we spent some time in our favourite park and were surprised at the way the leaves were turning.

 

The leaves which had the most exposure to light, on the top of the canopy, were the ones which were changing first. 

 

I had not noticed this process before but it was obvious in the park that day. 

 

However it occurs, the park is changing colour and soon the trees will be bare again. 


  

You know what happens then! However, for now, we will enjoy the developing colour in our oasis.

  1. Those mixed colors show a sign of autumn coming to your place. Your season has fast progressed.
    It is still hot here at daytime and leaves are green. I remember of your former post showing your grands playing at the park in early spring. Have a good new week.

  2. Yes Inspector Gamach. LP paints with words, love this series. My third great grandmother, (paternal great-grandfather's grandmother) was born in La Prairie Quebec. I think it was a small village, probably like Three Pines.

    Love looking at your photos. We are slightly behind you. I plan to look out the window at the trees turning across the US. changing planes in Chicago.

  3. I am always amazed at how slowly it starts, and how quickly it finishes...
    Our winters are much milder than yours, and I love the elegance of tree skeletons against the sky.

  4. By earl November, the leaves will be gone, unless there is a major wind storm! Then the "leave" early, EC.

    I love trees in all their various stages too. Majestic strength!

  5. We only have a couple of varieties of trees that change here. Sometimes it's subtle, and it rarely happens before the first week of November! Nice photos!

    1. November would be so strange to me, SW. Our trees are bare by then.

    1. On the north shore of PEI, the colour is more advanced it seems.

  7. I'd love to live where there were trees that changed colors. I really haven't seen fall affect my back yard but it will soon go from green to empty I'm sure.
