A Colorful Confusion ...

Finally, we got rain. The grass has quickly turned green, 
and the reservoirs are filling up. It's less than
three weeks to the end of summer and we're finally
getting the balmy evenings we generally
associate with the season.

But some of the plants are a bit confused.
This little tree has fruit for the birds, its leaves
are anticipating the fall a few weeks from now,
as well as trying to bloom as if it's spring.

All the colors look beautiful, though,
in their colorful confusion.

Sexually confused trees? I wonder what climate change will throw at us next.

Well, I guess if you'r going to have a breeding frenzy, you may as well touch all the bases you can find.
