    Brrrrr. I’m still running the air conditioner, though not much. It should hit 93F here today. Every now and then I want to see snow again and drive a couple hours to the mountains.

    We're starting to see some fresh snow on the Olympic Mountains. We seldom get any here at sea level.

    The season of color is all but over for another year. While it's been on the taller peaks for some time, we got the first termination dust of the season on our mountaintop yesterday...and it came all the way down overnight. That has to be a record. We usually have a few days or a couple of weeks between the two.

    A few pics from the property during a quick walk after cleaning up some of the gardening stuff yesterday.

    E

    Well, my pomegranate tree has gone yellow and is losing its leaves. I noticed a large tree in my neighbor’s yard has started to get some yellow leaves, but is mostly green. It does drop a lot of leaves in my yard, mostly in December and January. Right now it is still getting to 80F during the day, though down into the 40s at night. Also, it is supposed to drop to the 50s-60s during the day in two or three days, so we are finally getting to more wintery weather.

    Most things stay green all year, like the orange tree near the house. It can rarely get just cold enough here to make commercial citrus growing impractical - nearby you’ll find areas called “Citrus Heights” and “Orangevale” named because of extensive citrus farms, but they were wiped out early in the 20th century from a cold snap. We had a freeze that lasted through for a few days some years back, first time here I’ve seen it stay below freezing during the day. I had an exterior pipe freeze, it killed my lemon bushes down to the ground, but they came back, froze some cacti and succulents solid (they turned to mush and I never bothered to replace them) and did extensive damage to my orange tree.

    So far this autumn has been dull when it comes to colors. Even the maple trees are turning from green to yellowish brown before the leaves drop, not much in the orange/red range here. On the other hand the persimmons are turning a nice orange, the purple cabbages are heading up, and the blueberry bush foliage is turning a bit reddish...

    This will be the final update on my local fall colors, not much to offer but our maple tree did finally turn a nice oragey/red but the leaves fell off 5 minutes later so no pic there...

    Here's the persimmon tree in all it's glory...

    ...and one overhead shot from laying in my hammock. This is a Male Mulberry tree, or otherwise known as a Paper Mulberry tree, Thomas Jefferson's favorite shade tree...turns yellow before dropping...
