Rock-a-bye Trees

In a last ditch effort to eke out some food stores, the post oaks on my property are hanging onto their leaves longer than usual.  Late season rains have created a party atmosphere and no one wants to go to bed yet.  In a fit of tantrum, the trees seem to be refusing sleep like an exhausted toddler.  The result is an explosion of fall color that seems uncommon in mid-December, but is appreciated none the less.

Rock-a-bye trees... time to sleep.

  1. The fall color is surprisingly good this year despite the drought. Thanks for joining in for Foliage Follow-Up!
