Winter Fall

Brown, then Down

It’s that time of year again, fall, only it’s winter. In this part of Florida, most trees, especially the live oak trees, hold onto their leaves until January or later. Then they turn brown, with little color, and head for the roofs, lawns, driveways, and streets. The live oaks drop their leaves when their tiny flowers emerge showering pollen and later, old flower parts all over and seemingly into everything.

Our maple in the front yard just dumped all of its leaves all over the lawn but this year I discovered that the blower works much better than a rake to pile them up so I can haul them away to the composting area in back. Yep, fall is upon us, weird as that may sound.
