Tangle of the Day #2256

Fall here is always so mild. I am told that California doesn’t really get Fall, that the real autumnal fireworks are elsewhere in the country, but I do like the shows I get in Berkeley. Many trees don’t seem to notice the season at all, or they take it so slowly that their leaves don’t fall until the start of Spring; others, like this, leap into Winter wholeheartedly, and their silhouettes get tangled with the power lines for long months at a time.

I like the gingko trees, who wear their soft scales in a delicate yellow.

If I were to live elsewhere for a while – maybe someplace like Boston, where the seasons change so drastically – would California’s Autumn become too subtle for me to notice?
