Fall is in the air as the ash leaves are quickly turning yellow and falling these past few days. Most ash trees will be bare by the end of September. Ash trees are nice, but their leafy season is way too short in Manitoba. They're the last to get leaves (end of May) and the first to drop them. That's a whopping 4 months with leaves.. and 8 months bare. I mean, why bother??
Speaking of leaves.. I'm hoping for some nice fall colours this year. (as short as the season is up here) I've noticed that in dry years, fall colours tend to be more brilliant. Hopefully that's the case this year..
