Apparently there are places in the world where this is starting to happen? I wouldn’t know since Austin still has the summer dial turned up to like 8.5, and our trees don’t so much “change color” as “exhaustedly whither into a brown winter dormancy as if finally exhaling after the release of soul-crushing weight.”
This color-changing thing sounds nice though, I hope to check it out sometime!
PS - “Autumnal carotenoids” would make a great indie band name.
