Leaf Watch: Sunday, 9-23-07

High temp today, according to NWB 72 degrees F; low temp 45 degrees F. Rained most of the night and all day until about 3 pm. Weather expected to turn colder tonight and reach 68 degrees tomorrow, with a low in the mid 30s. We're anxious to see how this, along with all the moisture, may affect the leaf color in the next couple of days. We'll keep you posted! The woods: leaves just barely fading to yellow on some trees.
The meadow: the trees on the far side still look summer-green, but corn stalks (that's corn over there!) are yellowed and drying out.
The lane: Just a touch of barely yellow leaves around the edges.
The river: doesn't seem to know it's late September yet, though the grasses seem to be just barely turning, don't they?
