Several years ago, we bought Leyland Cypress trees for our backyard. The salesman told us, "They grow fast; be prepared!" This photo was taken last year on October 19th.
I took this one today, October 11th. I think it shows that the salesman was right! The foliage isn't quite as colorful as it was in the first photo. It's amazing what a difference 8 chilly days and nights can make when it come to changing the color of the landscape!
