nature, Photography Maple Turn Sep 28, 2022 Lynette d'Arty-Cross 20 Comments I found this tree that’s well on its way to turning a full autumn red. A lovely red and green maple tree, our national symbol. I love how the leaves are turning from the edges toward the middle. Happy Wednesday. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

They are turning here too
It’s a beautiful time of year. 🙂
Usually. September has been wet and cool.
You are getting some pretty crap weather out your way. Ugh.
Yes, but suppose to be sunny and high teens temperature all week so finally some nice fall weather
I hope it arrives. Autumn can be so nice!
Beautiful colors. Our leaves aren’t turning yet, just a few are dropping so far.
This just started in the last couple of days. The change was suddenly there!
It is so colourful in the river valley here. Not as much red as other places, but the oranges and golds are spectacular. Happy Wednesday Lynette. Allan
Yes, I remember Alberta’s golds and oranges. My last house there had a tree in the back yard that turned the most intense yellow. It was so gorgeous!
Many of our maples here on Vancouver Island have had a mildew on their leaves all summer, and dry curling leaves since early spring. I’m not sure what’s going on with them, and I’m not sure how widespread the problem is.
A mildew! That sounds really bad. I’m not aware of anything like that here and certainly haven’t seen any evidence of sick maple trees, but that of course doesn’t mean that it isn’t on its way. I hope not, though.
I think (I hope) that if you haven’t seen it in the Okanagan yet this year, it will probably not show up. The leaves will fall, cold weather will kill the mildew (I hope), and all will be well again next spring.
Thanks for the explanation. 🙂
Wow. You’ve got some good color there already. Ours hasn’t begun yet, but I did notice the tips of some trees starting to turn. Just makes me want to dive in and become one with those colors. 🍁🍂
I agree, Lori. The autumn colours are so wonderful. The majority of the trees and bushes aren’t showing any signs of changing yet but this one very suddenly turned in the space of about two days. It can happen so fast! We will hit some gorgeous colours in about two weeks. I’ll post more photos then.
So pretty. I love all those deep shades of red. It definitely feels and looks like fall here in southern Ontario too.
This tree was the first to change (on the one block) and it was so fast! It decided to go to sleep and that’s that! Agreed, I love all the shades of red. So beautiful.
I miss the colorful leaves of maple trees in the North Country!
Agreed – they are so vibrant and beautiful! Lovely to see. 🙂
