Leaves

DSC_2189_7277If you’re in California, have you noticed that the leaves in the trees are sticking around longer than usual?  Several people have observed this to me. 

DSC_2185_7273Sure.  They’re coming down; but leaves are still up in the trees mocking Winter.  Maybe that’s the problem.  It hasn’t been cold enough.  There hasn’t been any rain.  How about a little wind?  I can’t stand the wind – freezing rain will do nicely.

Below are some images taken earlier this year of Ajax to use as a scale of growth.DSC_2352_5778

We've had three snows, but then have had t shirt weather. What is up with that? I need a good freeze to get my fruit trees going. Grrr.

*Girl - I was in Gorman Wednesday night. Sheesh. That was a cold wind up there. You're right though. We need the snow and cold temperatures to help with the fruit trees. I now have a tan since I've been swimming everyday for a week. Bring on the cold.
