Summer lingers

By Penny Stine

The temperature has dropped, the irrigation water is long gone and everything out in the garden has frozen at least once. 

Yet when I look out my kitchen window, this is what I see:

I don't know what kind of tree it is. All I know is that it's the very last tree to drop its leaves in the fall. This year, there's a slight golden glow, as if the leaves really want to change color but haven't figured out how to actually do it. It usually won't drop its leaves until we get the first really cold snap accompanied by snow - usually on Thanksgiving as we're driving over a mountain pass somewhere in Colorado! 

At least this year the city is extending the leaf pickup until December.
