Nature Notes and the Tulip Tree
This photo was taken from my balcony looking across my driveway at the neighbors yard. It is, of course, July. So, what is wrong with this picture?
Are you thinking that the fall leaves look a bit out of place? I thought so too...so, of course, I investigated.
Turns out that all of the yellow and brown leaves had come from the neighbors tulip tree. I googled tulip tree and "yellow leaves" and several sources told me that the leaves of tulip trees will turn yellow and fall under drought conditions.
Mystery solved! It's the drought. Luckily, we had a big storm yesterday morning...here's hoping that cheered the poor tulip tree up a bit!
I have prepared this post so as to participate in Nature Notes over at RamblingWoods.com. Check it out, It's a lot of fun. We get together and show and tell what Mother Nature is up to each week in our corners of the world!
