Apple Update

After the summer's heat and drought, the month of September ended on a very wet note.  Yesterday, there were nearly three inches of rain in my neighborhood.  More is forecast for today.  The backyard lawn is growing like it's spring.  And my fruit trees are still dark green.
I know that the swampy warmth and rain won't last forever.  In fact, a close look reveals the start of fall color on the fruit trees.  Soon enough the cold mornings will linger and the trees will shed their leaves.  But for as long as it lasts, I'll enjoy the lush green of my backyard.
