Summer leaves…in December

It’s turned cold now in December, as it should, but the leaves of many deciduous trees that should normally be denuded by now are still to be found on some trees, glowing green, although a little bit rough around the edges in some cases. Our rare freakily warm November has kept the landscape largely green, but the return to normal temperatures with frosty nights will mean these leaves won’t last long.
