The Hickory trees seem to be very shy this year. They are all hugging their coat of leaves very close to the branches. While others are becoming know as bare naked ladies, the hickories have decided they will keep their frocks as long as possible.
This photo was taken 11-7-2013 and if you enlarge it you can see the top of the Ginkgo tree in the bottom right and a large Holly on the back side of the house.
My very first post was about Squirrel Crumbs which was inspired by walking under the hickories near the house and down the driveway. Sometimes I would go out the front door and the crumbs would be like solid rain as a dozen or more long tail rats feasted on the bounty.
The Kitty Justice is Mother Nature will order them to loose their frocks and soon.
