As our warm November came to a close, cold weather crept in. Even so, the peach tree stubbornly held on to the last of its leaves, seemingly reluctant to admit that Winter is coming.
Last night, a rainstorm blew in and all of the peach tree leaves are gone. The tree is stark and plain, guarding its corner and ready for Winter. The days are getting shorter by the minute and the impulse to seek cover and rest grows stronger for me as well. So I tuck under my down comforter as the tree holds its own in the corner of the yard.
