Nature Walks – Fall Colors in July?

I know 2020 has been one hell of a wild ride so far, but now even Mother Nature has decided to act up a bit too.  According to the calendar, it is the end of July.   For all the countries in the Northern Hemisphere, that means it is summer time, and for a lot of places, like here in Colorado, summer time meats HOT, HOT, HOT!  We have been averaging in the high 90’s F or low 40’s C all summer.  But I am actually starting to see some of our trees and bushes transitioning into their fall colors already.  The first time I saw it, I thought it was a fluke, but then I started to see it more and more.  What’s is going on here?  I love Fall, it’s my favorite season, but we’re not done with summer yet.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.

  1. I’ve been noticing strange things with mother nature as well…haven’t noticed any trees totally changing color yet. A few yellow leaves, but nothing major. Has it been exceptionally dry in your area? That could be one thing that affects the trees.

      1. Mother earth is just as confused as we are…we had a cold snap back in May, where I had to go out and cover my strawberries every night for about a week due to freezing temps. I only got 1 strawberry this year 😦
        I think with everything that’s going on, we need to look at things “with eyes wide open” and pay attention. This fall and winter season could be tough.
