Wind-assisted decidulation and other seasonal items

The last couple of days have been rather draughty here.  Nowhere near as bad as the Central Coast or the Hunter but still cold and unpleasant to be outdoors.

To quote B Dylan Esq "You don't need to be a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows ....".  I don't think he was thinking about checking the direction your Pistachio leaves had blown.
Nor the pine needles drifting across the drive.
 Anyway the wind blows, the willow leaves end up in Whiskers Creek!

 Meanwhile back at the ranch, fungus are sprouting.   As they are white underneath (and growing around a pin-oak) there is no risk of me eating them.
In due course I will be eating these colourful spuds.  When I dug them, covered in dirt I didn't realise they were different varieties.  Frances advises that under the skin they are equally different in texture!
It is also apple harvest time.
Just so that one doesn't get too depressed at the thought of about 5 months of Winter the ash tree is already generating buds ...
As is the Acacia pravissima
