Burning Bush


The first leaf has turned!


Please note that in my pedi party post, I gave the wrong date!
I said "just in time for Labor Day" but then gave the date a 
week after Labor Day weekend.  So the corrected date is
Friday, August 30th.  One week from tomorrow!

    1. I wouldn't mind summer staying a while longer if it continues on like it has been...best summer I remember in a long while!

    2. I agree it was lovely, and way too speedy. But I'm very ready for a school schedule where things slow down a bit and breathing is possible. lol

  6. I saw a maple tree that was just starting to "turn" today too. Makes me feel this mixture of anticipation for fall, and sadness that summer is almost over. :)

    Say it isn't so, Betsy!

    Cheers!

    1. Are you? Summer has seemed so much cooler that I haven't hated it this year. And lately, it's seemed a little like an early fall! I love it!

  10. A favourite time of year for me... as I much prefer cooler temps over the heat and humidity.

    When we lived in the city (Toronto) we had a beautiful burning bush in our front yard. I hope to add one or more here in the county.

    Gorgeous!

    1. fall is a favorite for me, too! It's just all around wonderful! I think putting a burning bush on your to do list would be a very good thing!

  11. Pull it out, just like a gray hair. I have forbidden our trees to turn until September under threat of a severe pruning! Ha. I don't want summer to end!

  13. I know I'm ready for school to start, but I'm not quite sure I'm ready to let go of summer. I'm definitely not ready for the "other" season.

    1. I could take another few months of what we have...it's been so lovely!

  14. I love my burning bushes when they're totally red, but I'm not ready for summer to end! Our summer's been very pleasant with lower temps and humidity than usual too and I'd love for it to go on a while longer. I do like fall but I'm not looking forward to what follows.

    1. I agree about the summer...the best in my memory that is for sure. The heat and humidity have been so seldom and that's really what I dislike about summer. It's been great!

  16. Hi, Betsy! I am so envious of your Northern Hemisphere autumns. I would so love to see the leaves change, but almost all our trees are evergreen, here in the Southern Hemisphere!

    I will pop in at your Pinterest in a mo and do some stalkin's! (I'm Barefoot Girl!) You have a beautiful family, Betsy! I hope you have a beautiful weekend too!

    All the best,

    Jéanne. (Mum To A Meezer!)

  17. Boy, that red leaf really pops among all that green! It's hard for me to believe that fall is right around the corner; summer just zipped by.

  19. Lovely lone red leaf. It must be really pretty when the whole thing turns. My favorites are red and orange. We have 10-acres of oaks so I have mostly yellows with a few bits of red/orange.

    I have one tree that always turns first. Usually by the end of July you can see a change. But this year with all the rain the thing is still as green as ever. And mother nature has kept her hands from around my Hostas' throat! We are most summers so dry here it looks as if she had choked the life from them by the end of June. I wonder what our autumn holds with our summer being so strangely different. A surprise maybe but a good one I pray.
