I hereby pronounce this Victorville's first tree of fall ... in my neighborhood, at least.
Fall gets off to a slow start here in Southern California, maybe even more so in the High Desert. A few days ago, this little tree was aflame with red and orange leaves. Unfortunately, the wind got to it before me and my camera.
But as you can see in the next photo, the trees stretching off behind it are all still fully engulfed in green.
It may be fall, but I guess they didn't get the memo.
