Festival of Leaves, 2019 – Week 2 – Scuppernong Vines and Tulip Poplars

Since last week the moderate drought here in North Georgia has become worse, and daytime temperatures hover around 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celcius; it sounds so much worse in Fahrenheit, doesn’t it?).

Nonetheless the leaves are beginning to change. There’s a little bit of yellow now in the Scuppernong (a type of wild grape) vines that trail through our pine trees and a good bit of yellow in the Tulip Poplars.

Again this autumn, Dawn at The Day After is hosting the weekly Festival of Leaves challenge. You can see her autumn leaves or join the challenge here.

  1. We got a little rain here today and we thought it was going to rain all day but it was done by noon. Still better than its been but we need more, especially when the temps go up so high!
    Glad to see you were able to spot a few signs of autumn and share them with us.

    1. At least you got a little rain. It rained literally for about 5 minutes a few days ago, not enough to get the ground wet. Thanks for hosting the Festival of Leaves again. I really enjoy it!

    Autumn makes for a festival of colour!


    1. It does! I just wish the weather was autumn-like! It’s still beastly hot here, with very high humidity.

        Seems the weather-patterns have gone topsy-turvy in many parts of the world!
