Early Autumn

General post from Sue Sunderland

I have a much loved red hawthorn tree, Paul's Scarlet, which is approximately 13 years old.
Last summer at this time of the year, or maybe slightly later, it suddenly started to drop all it's leaves and within a few days it looked as though it were in mid winter.
I really thought that we had lost it, but this year it came back into leaf, but with fewer blossoms than usual. Within the last 2 days it has again started to drop its leaves and already the garden looks like autumn.
As shown in the photo, there are already bare patches and leaves are falling continually now.
Nothing in the near vicinity of the tree has changed within the last few years. It stands at the end of an established border. Is anyone able to offer any explanation as to why this should be happening?
