My tree is almost bare........
We have been enjoying the last of our Persimmon for the season. Rain has made the paper bags translucent and sometimes breaking the bag and exposing them to the delight of birds. The chill of the season sweetens the persimmons.
In late December some leaves remain on the tree. You can see the orange fruit showing through the wet translucent paper bags!
The leaves took on an orange tinge in late Noevember. It becomes the color of the ripe Pesimmon by the time the leaves are fully colored. Later, the base of the tree will be carpeted with the orange colored leaves.
