...The falling leaves drift by my window...making me think it is Autumn--but no! It's Springtime in Central Texas. This is the time of year the Live Oaks shed their leaves. As the new ones emerge, the old ones turn brown and fall. Not only do I have all the leaves in my yard, but already people who know me are calling, asking me if I want their leaves...Uh, Yeah! Lovely brown matter to add to my compost pile as well as mulch for all the beds.
And look! I have actual blossoms on one of my Crab apple trees! I am so excited at the thought of having crab apples this fall!
