Kent (and others),

I guess it's good to know I'm not the only one witnessing that strange 

I forgot to add that I am in Zone 7b about 25 miles NW of Atlanta GA.

I do not remember seeing any yellow leaves on the almond trees.  The lower 
leaves must have dried and fell off quite early in the season.  There was 
some vigorous new growth for a while, but it has looked like this for a long 
time most of the summer with no change one way or the other.  Sorry for not 
being more observant.

Is there anything I can do this late in the season too help it feel more at 
home?  I read they like dryer climates so I built a 6 foot wide mound about 
6 inches above the lawn.
