In no time at all

Four days ago, the leaves on the ornamental pear tree were green. Overnight, they became golden, red, orange, and purple. Yesterday, a few leaves fell, and most of the tree was golden. This noontime, leaves were dropping everywhere. I suppose that tomorrow morning the tree will be bare. Only clusters of nuts remain on the pecan tree. Until yesterday evening, about 15% of the leaves were still on the tree; this morning there weren't even any branchlets snagged. It's time to rake again.
