The leaves that are green
Finally turn to yellow
Flutter to the ground
My apple tree is running a little behind the rest of the garden. I look out and see the tree is still covered in green leaves, but at least some are now falling. The oak tree and syringa have been bare for a while now.
All the rest of the garden is green or in full bloom, like my poinsettia, camellia and honeysuckle.
Winter is weird in the Western Cape!
You can listen to Simon and Garfunkel singing “The leaves that are green.”
