Fall Foliage

The Fall Equinox just started “on the Northern Hemisphere”, but in Texas, we are still enjoying  90 degree weather.  Due do to these high temperatures, at this moment in time we don`t have any visible changes in the foliage.  I love the fall season with shorter, cooler days and the beautiful fall foliage.  I want to share with you the beautiful trees of  fall in Burlington, Vermont and Euless, Texas, from pasts Fall Equinox.  The Euless, Texas trees pictures were taken last year.  The Vermont pictures were taken some time back when I lived there in beautiful Vermont.  Due to their almost all year super low temperatures, you can enjoy the fall foliage since the beginning of September, or before.
