Many of the deciduous Cannonball Trees in the gardens shed its crown of green leaves under the sweltering heat of the day but those in the SuperTree Grove had those leaves intact, except for this one particular individual which decided enough was enough. Within a matter of days, the leaves of this tree took on a bronzy colour and shed the leaves wave after wave with each gust of wind until the crown was completely bare.

When the rains came soon after, the new crown of fresh young leaves quickly took over.
