Saturday Photo: Good News on the Tar Spot Front

A summer of rain, last year's effort to rake up infected leaves, or maybe just the natural immune system of trees. Whatever the reason this year the dreaded tar spot disease has not been as prevalent. These leaves were picked up yesterday, as the fall colours begin to come out spectacularly. A year ago not one of the leaves would not have been splotched with fungus growths which look just like tar spots.

A little hope for the world!
