  2. I loved the smell of burning leaves hovering in the air of my neighborhood. Those were the days.

    We loved to build leaf “houses.” The leaves were lined up to define the walls of the house. We would play for hours…

      When a kid in Penna, we used to build ‘forts’ of branches, bending them to make a roof, then cover it with leaves. Shh! Don’t tell any-buddy 🙂 It was our secret hideout and we all ate a lot of lunches in those forts, even supper, if Mom didn’t mind. 🙂

    What’s autumn? Oh, wait, I heard that term! All the leaves fall off the trees and 3 feet of snow bury them. Then 8 tiny reindeer show up and gnaw down the Christmas tree. Here, it’s late in the year when the dhilis and pecans are all picked, and ranchers load the calves to haul to the auction house. December, I think, but definitely not before Thanksgiving. Then people break out prickly pear jelly and make Christmas pancakes (like crepes, but loaded with spices, cinnamon and ginger, and so on, and on the crispy side). A neighbor picked his dates, as last, and the easy way is, cut off all fronds up to the stalks of dates. I got the fronds for the garden. Date fronds have a deterrent to thieves, the first 18 inches of ‘leaves’ are stiff sikes with a needle tip. Meanwhile, every time it rains the kumquat tree wants to bloom. Happy autumn, all!
