This is today, February 4th. One month of summer to go.
After the hot weather that we had last week (4 days over 40c) and the 2nd driest January on record (0.8mm of rain for the month) it looks like the European type deciduous trees have gone into shock & dropped their leaves very very early. 2 weeks ago these trees were a very healthy green enjoying the summer growing season with not a fallen leaf to be seen, but now these trees on our street are suffering. Will they survive? I hope so..
Autumn? No. Global warming? Maybe.
All I know is that the weather patterns are changing and we will have to adapt.
