Anyone noticing the leaves changing?

Last week (maybe on Thursday or Friday) I happened to be driving home, and I noticed for the first time one of the trees along the street changing color. The leaves were a beautiful red. It really stood out and got my attention.

It was then I realized for the first time: That was the first time I'd really noticed the leaves changing color. The trees on my block? They're not changing, like they usually do! I mean, here in the last day or so, I've started to notice a little bit of a color change, but they sure are taking their time! Usually you can see leaves changing color by early October to mid October! Now we're getting close to the end of the month!

I'm wondering if it's the weather we've been having? It's been colder than normal for the last two weeks (we've got another frost advisory tonight). Instead of the normal Fall weather, it feels more like winter.

Anyone else noticing this?

Around my house, all of my maple trees have changed and are all about done shedding their leaves entirely. However, the area in general is just about at full bloom right now, if not just past it because the leaves are all falling to the ground.....

About 50 miles south of me, the trees are almost at their full Fall colors...

Ours are changing, but they aren't as beautiful as usual due to lack of rain this year. The trees are quickly dropping them, and many are already brown and crunchy. Kind of makes me sad. :/

Ours are changing but not quite as brilliantly or as quickly as usual. I'm not sure why that is but it's kinda sad to see the hard frosts coming and killing things off before they're truly getting a chance to change.

Wonder if it's going to be a hard winter...

We still aren't at peak, another week or so. There's still lots of orange, yellow, gold, red and purple. So pretty!
