Just a few shots of fall beauty…..at least for me. We’ve been too busy on house projects to think about anything fun or exciting….but I still love the color here.
We have 2 apple trees…the Gravenstein ripens in August, this Granny Smith in October…so we get apples for 3 months… NO, we didn’t eat very many, and as these fall, deer and/or a coyote wanter through every day or two and pick up what’s on the ground:
And in the back yard side, along the point the drop-off begins…. when we cut the maples 10 years ago leaving the high stumps to rot and eventually fill with bugs for woodpeckers, we ALSO planted a Pine Tree…. Now, 10 years later, it’s STILL small, and I’m wondering what happens first…does it catch up to the height of the stumps BEFORE they fall or not:
And, 20′ away, right off the deck we finally planted a SEQUOIA tree from the pot it’s been in for 10 years….and no, there’s nothing wrong with it. We bought it as soon as we heard that it IS: Deciduous….I’d never heard of that in a Sequoia, so we’ve been watching it’s beautiful light green needles turn brown every fall and drop….it’s a beautiful tree:
And so much for November. WILL we get motivated to be ready for December?
