Late Fall

 

All the leaves on the Asian pears have turned golden and are dropping off, and the persimmon leaves are also starting to turn.  But except for a couple crabs, the apples are still in full swing.  I’m doing some “late summer” pruning before they start to go dormant.

The tree in front is Goldrush, and it still needs a few weeks.  Sundowner and Lady Williams need about six more weeks.  The roses are thankful the heat is over and will be peaking now through Christmas, blooming even through the rains.  Speaking of which, we got our first real shower since April this morning, along with some very rare thunder (which we paranoid Californians mistake for earthquakes at first).
