Fall Is In The Air

There definitely is a feeling of fall in the air here in Northern California. People often lament a lack of seasons here in California, but they are still here, if a bit more subtle. The days are growing shorter, our Indian summer October weather is here today, and of course the trees are turning. Striking specimens this time of year are Chinese Pistache and Liquid Ambar; two trees that dependably color this time of year.

It is always amusing when planting people's yards how they are drawn to plants in season. In the fall people want to plant Crape Myrtles and Japanese Maples, in the spring its Flowering Cherry and other blooming fruit trees. Most trees that have this seasonal interest do go deciduous and drop their leaves- thus emerging or departing all the more spectacularly.
