On this nice rainy Saturday I will take the opportunity to post my annual Fall foliage tribute. It's been a tough year for our thirsty trees so we will have to see how the Fall colors react. Some of my favorites like my fruitless mulberry have been struggling to retain their leaves prior to them turning their bright yellow.
But this lovely example did just fine. I cannot identify the species, but the orange is magnificent.
My neighbor down the street has a very mature persimmon tree that is having a great fruit-bearing year. He kindly shared a bowlful with me so I just have to wait for them to ripen. He picked them before the squirrels got them all.
