|red and green almonds on the tree|
Monday, January 2, 2012
We have an almond tree in the front yard. I've enjoyed the way there is a little bit of fall all year round: individual leaves turn bright red before they fall, while the rest of the tree stays green. This morning I noticed for the first time that some of the almonds are turning red, too. Do you suppose this means we will have ripe almonds falling of the tree sometime this month? In any case, it's both pretty and festive, red and green in keeping with the Christmas season which is still upon us for a few more days.
