The “Queen’s Crepe Myrtle” tree has red leaves on it and possibly thinks that it is in the wrong season, or maybe it’s internal GPS thinks that it is in the Southern Hemisphere and that we are going into winter. Even though the tree has red leaves on it, it also has fresh buds, so a new set of fresh green leaves should sprout out this Spring.
The raccoons are making their nightly rounds, eating cat food biscuits in the back patio. I wish I could take a photo of them in real time but they only come by at night in an area that is not well lit. By the time I get my camera out they would be gone.
There is the mother raccoon and her two kits are usually not far behind. I often see the mother raccoon in the front yard, not far from my door, and when she sees me she stands in an upright position her two hind legs.
