A "false autumn"?

 My wife found a BBC article regarding the effects the latest heatwaves and the drought had on the environment here. Apparently, in some places the leaves are already changing colours in the trees, even falling, as they are already in survival mode. Hence the term "false autumn" Which is obviously not a good thing. I haven't seen major changes in the trees around here, so I hope they have been spared. But I find it sad that I cannot associate the colours change to a most welcomed seasonal change. Not just yet anyway. Otherwise, and that said, I have been looking and seeing signs of autumn to come: the air is cooler and there is something in the light that is no longer summery. One can hope.
