A short bonus post. The dogwoods have already started turning colors. In fact, they started about a week or so ago. Don't worry, fall leaf colors are not coming early this year - dogwoods do this slow turn every year.
Some of the yellow buckeyes though, are starting to drop their leaves too - they normally are among the first to lose leaves in the fall - it's just built into their genes, but they also get a leaf fungus that causes premature leaf drop.
