Look ... I think I see something ... can you see it?
Look closer ... yes, there it is ... the leaves are changing color!
One thing about the hot California Central Valley, we don't get the glorious jaw-dropping Autumn leaves like they do in other parts of the country. But I do see a little red and orange starting to peek through on the tree in my front yard.
I remember one year, when my friend Kristen was living in Kentucky, she laminated some of the beautifully colored fall leaves and sent them to me. Do you remember that, Kris? I still have those leaves in my cedar chest. And no, our trees here just don't measure up. But our trees here do produce a lot of fruit and nuts. And fruit and nuts make me pretty happy. So I guess it's ok.
Here's my neighbor's tree.
