In this line of sugar maples, most are still green, but a couple have turned a beautiful orange!
The world is definitely starting to look more autumnal, with bits of color here and there.  At this point, no species seems to be consistently turning colors... but there are early adopters out there (as though ceasing to photosynthesize was like deciding to wear skinny jeans, or jelly shoes...) that are starting to wear their fall hues.  

This is true not just of sugar maples, but other species as well... some locusts are turning yellow.  Some lindens are turning brown/yellow, some birches are turning yellow... but overall, taking the species as a whole, none of them are predominantly changing... yet.  With cool weather starting tomorrow and October around the corner, I'm sure it won't be long!
