Its mid November…I realize much of the United States has experienced Fall and expect winter to blow in anytime. But here in Texas we are still experiencing warm temperatures (today it was in the 80’s fahrenheit).
We never experience much of a Fall…but this summer has really dragged on. So needless to say when I noticed a couple leaves on the tree in our front yard changing I grabbed my camera.
Last March I posted several pictures of my Texas Red Bud Tree. The tree was full of beautiful pink blooms.

The rest of the summer the tree stood proudly and showed off its lovely green leaves.
But now it is time for the leaves to fall away…so the tree will stand bare until next spring when the cycle begins again.
I find it interesting that I did not find the tree intriguing enough to take pictures when it was full of leaves.
Trees are such a representation of life….when things are drastically different (beginning of life – end of life) we pay attention. But when things are OK, not crazy, not new, not dying we tend to not pay much attention.
