Leaf senescence

Formally, this is leaf senescence. They’re off the tree and desiccating…and the decomposition bacteria and critters are a’coming!

And I think today ties the record for longest stretch in ATL without measurable rainfall—39 days. That’s why we have power-dry and hard-as-cement soil (depending on compaction). Last time we had this stretch was, I think, 1844.

Will anyone say “climate change”? These sure seem like the maximal shifts that multiple specialists have forecast, and perhaps the drying of the interior continent that has been predicted.
