It's time for our annual lowcountry mini-autumn. Live Oak trees -- mature trees, but not the young ones -- shed their leaves and grow them back within a couple weeks. Each has its own schedule. This one's early, most others around are still green or just getting started. On Wednesday, it was green. Thursday morning, it was golden and shedding everywhere. If I'd known that today would be cloudy, I'd have photographed it yesterday when the sun on the gold leaves was quite beautiful!
