For most of us, it's time to get out there and see the leaves.  They are turning...it's not yet clear what kind of color show we'll get here in Texas, but I am hoping there are a few still on the branches when I head to North Carolina in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, I'm taking every opportunity to wander around the neighborhood and local parks to take a look.  Did you know there are more than 750 tree species native to North America?  If you can't figure out what you're looking at, snap a photo of a leaf with your iPhone and use the Leafsnap app to identify it.  You'll know your Shumards from your water oaks in no time at all.
