Plenty of leaves have fallen in the backyard, though the peach tree isn’t quite ready to let go.
The trees behind the garage ---- a mulberry, two apple trees, and a pear tree still have plenty of leaves and the raking chore can hold off for now.
We’ve had a warm fall, with days determined to hold on to the 70s. The coming week promises more of the same, so perhaps it’s fitting that while Mother Nature stubbornly holds on to the warmth, the peach tree keeps it leaves. Even so, daylight is shrinking and the sun is now setting an hour earlier. Warm November days feel like a treat that won’t last.
