"Leaf"ing Summer Behind

As much as we hate to admit that summer is drawing to a close (with yesterday's final screening in the 2014 Bryant Park Film Festival season a sure sign of cooler weather to come), the leaves of our London Plane trees are indicating the end of the season in no uncertain terms. London Planes tend to shed their leaves in mid-August, making them one of the earliest leaf-shedders. Here are some photos of our recent ground cover.

A mosaic of leaves accents the Upper Terrace. 

That's a pretty big pile for August!

This is just one of hundreds of bags of leaves that will be swept from the allees. 

It's nice to see fall colors again, even if that also means that summer is ending.

You know what leaves on the ground means--snow is closer than we think!
