Watch UK Autumn Leaves Changing Colour

Last year, this cool application was posted at the Google Earth Community which lets you view the current autumn tree leaf colour in the UK . ‘RobRoy’ wrote an application which grabs the current leaf colour for different regions in the UK from a Forrestry web site and shows the leaf colour changes in Google Earth. Since it is a network link, all you have to do is save it in your “My Places” and turn it on and it will automatically check for changes and show you the current leaf colours. I check on it every couple of days just for fun (even though I don’t live in the UK). You can view RoyRoy’s post where he announced his network link at the Google Earth Community.
Now, if only some people would write Autumn Color programs for the rest of the world. I’m surprised after seeing this last year someone didn’t think of doing it for other countries by now.
