Because of the dry summer we have had alot of trees are stressed and either turning color or dropping their leaves already!! Esp vulunerable are ash and maple trees. I have jus thad the garden hose on an ash tree for 3 hours!!!
THe black walnut trees are dropping their nuts to which is a pain as squirrels pick them up and bury them in my flower beds!!
Also the amt of flies have increased alot and the birds are starting to flock together on the power lines!!
All signs of a late summer to me!!
