Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Wordless Wednesday - Confused Trees Not Changing Colors

Wordless Wednesday - Confused Trees Not Changing Colors

tree in austin tx

I'm not sure this tree knows what season it is.  This tree is in Falconhead Bee Cave TX, but this is what most all the trees look like in and around Austin TX right now.  It's been unseasonably warm, and the trees aren't sure to change colors and drop their leaves yet...

And we wonder why everyone always gets sick when the seasons change? If the trees aren't even sure what season it is, how are we supposed to know how to dress?!!!

Donna, the weather here has been unusually warm the last few days. It didn't stop the leaves from falling though. Nice Photo!

No leaves left here... All the trees are without clothes for the winter except the firs...

We've had one of our prettiest falls here in North Texas though.... Warm is good. I love it warm all through December. I know that's a 50/50 chance with Texas.

Hi Donna.  I didn't know the trees actually changed color down in Austin...

What do I know?:)

Anyway, keep rocking!

Donna - Maybe the trees don't want to accept that it's fall.

Donna, if it has been warm, I am sure they are very confused! I would be too. Like, is it really November? Noooooooooooo, CAN'T BE! :-)

Hi Donna...  There's one in every crowd.  Those trees are stragglers that hang around long enough to create some end of season allergens.

Be thankful for the good weather, before your know it the leafs will change overnight.

Good luck and success.

I agree, much the same over here at Canyon Lake but I think since we have had a couple cold nights we will soon see a change. I think the drought has them confused. Ceil just did a blog on Lost Maples, a friend of hers went and said they are changing.

I don't think  the live oaks in the hill  change color . They drop leaves in the spring and new ones come right back. They are super trees to have though.

I wish we had some leaves - still have snow on the ground from the last snow storm! ~Rita

Craig, I know! I bundle Alyssa up in the morning, and pick her up in a short sleeve shirt!

Michael, At least I don't have to rake the leaves!

Caron, They must look dead...

Loreena, It was really warm two years ago after Alyssa was born. She left the hospital with no hat or boodies on it was so warm.

Ken, Yes, they're supposed to change, just not yet...

MIchelle, Maybe not.

Marney, This year went by too quickly for it to be November already!

Steve, But it's not ONE in a crowd, it's the norm here. The trees that are changing colors are the ones standing out in a crowd.

Lou, Yeah, and then they'll be dead all over the ground.

C & C, Slowly, but soon surely.

Trey, They do as there are some that are orange and brown.

Rita, Snow? Can I have the language of origin, please...

Hey, Donna. I was thinking that this morning when I saw one yellow tree amongst all the green trees. Great photo, Jim

Posted by Jim & Maria Hart, Charleston, SC Real Estate (Brand Name Real Estate) almost 9 years ago

Donna,  We have some late changers in our area too.  I suppose it depends on the weather but I think pretty soon it will be all over with.  Enjoy the green ones while they last!
