Tree Cloths

The colours on the Arbutus Tree Cloth were showing a shift in colours when I did the July colour studies. 

The Arbutus is an evergreen but it sheds half its leaves over summer.
There is a shift from a yellow green to a low intensity orange.

The Maple is also showing a change - the chlorophyll is beginning to move downward.
There is a shift in colour from green to yellow.
Fall is coming.

New growth on the cedar has turned to a cooler green.

And, as usual, there is not much change in the Douglas-fir needle colour.
I am stitching a July band on each of the tree cloths in the colors I have observed.
