Fall comes during winter in Phoenix

Many of the trees you see in the Phoenix area stay green all year but, there are a good number that shed their leaves when it stays cool for an extended period. We’ve finally hit that period of time. Trees are turning beautiful colors and shedding their leaves all over town. I have two on my drive that are doing the same. In the next few weeks they will all be bare but, starting in late February or early March, there will be buds popping out all over.

It's nice to have a little taste of fall and know that spring is so close. Pretty shot.

The trees in San Diego are on the same schedule. Funny, I have never noticed it until now.

Beautiful photo and a bit unexpected for the season :)

I guess that's just the sort of climate I like the best: a little while to enjoy autumn colours and then summer again :)

The benefit is, really, it's fall...and then spring, usually skipping over the "winter" part!

That's so amazing. Our aspens only have leaves from late May until October.
