The Last of the Leaves

You might notice that as this tree is losing the last of its leaves, there are plenty of trees in the background that have yet to turn Fall colors and may never do so. Fall is interesting in the desert simply because it goes on until mid-January and sometimes February. Many of our plants in the cities are imports and live on a different schedule than the native plants. Some trees lose their leaves as early as October and others are just finishing losing their leaves when the new leaves arrive in February or March.
