We finally got rain over the weekend, but the water table is still well below normal. I can't remember seeing the trees so stressed.
It's not really fall yet.
The sycamores in particular seem to be adopting this strategy.
While walking in the woods, we came across these fruits that I thought at first were wild grapes.
But they're not. When I saw the caps I realized that they were actually persimmons! Really, really undersized persimmons.
When I broke one open, they were wormy inside too.
