On Wednesday night it snowed, and the temperature spent several hours below freezing. That caused this to happen:
Those leaves fell en masse from a linden tree in my neighborhood. Which means they won't fall in two weeks when they're bright yellow.
Most of the trees in my neighborhood, and the ivy covering my own building, dropped all their leaves the morning after the snowstorm. So we don't really get an autumn this year. And that makes me sad.
Nature, sometimes you suck.
