Springtime Halloween

In our neighborhood, we have a few trees whose leaves are changing colors as if it were Fall. The tree in the video below has a rather black trunk, so perhaps the Fall colors are due to some type of inherent health issue? Or, I did read that late frosts can sometimes alter the pigmentation of Spring leaves. We have had 3 frosts so far this Spring.

Anyway, it's kind of fun to have a taste of Halloween in the Spring. Maybe someday, I'll create a 'Springtime Spirit Grove' display. Young Marrow does something like this in his backyard down in New Zealand.
