A couple of days ago, my spouse had a dream: in September, we would be hit by a cold wave, with temperatures in the mid teens (approximately -9 Celsius) and snow on the ground.
Please, not yet.
Right now, where I live in upstate New York the leaves on many trees are close to turning the dull green that precedes their starting the shut down process that makes them lose leaves and go into winter dormancy.
But not yet. Earlier in August, this tree at our local botanical gardens shone with green and yellow variegated leaves.
Here is a closeup.
There is no tag on the tree so I have no idea what kind of tree it is. It isn't common. If anyone knows, I would love to know.
In the meantime, the tree stands - a mystery to all but, apparently, itself.
