But anyway, the tree depicted in this week’s comic is probably reflecting my own attitude a little more than that of the general state of the foliage of the city. There’s still lots of green leaves around, and everything is starting to look a bit refreshed after a few proper rainy days this month. But there are a couple trees that seem to be closing up shop just a little too quick to be dignified. Why, just this yesterday I shuffled through a pretty good pile of orange leaves that had accumulated on the sidewalk. There’s other signs too– the geese are getting kind of restless, and there’s just a certain tint that the sunlight has taken too. Change on the wind, says I. It’s getting to be cider time again. Speaking of which, I think I might go heat some up now.
