It sounds ridiculous, but I never realised pistachio nuts grew on trees – I assumed ground-covering shrubbery, for some reason.

These don’t produce the nuts and the ones around here don’t usually bear the little fruit either. They are used a lot along streets and in new developments. Hardy, drought tolerant and can handle frost. And… they are absolutely spectacularly vibrant in the Fall 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ↓ Karuna August 10, 2016 • 9:29 pm Beautiful. It looks like fall is coming to California early too. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ↓ Arati August 11, 2016 • 3:15 pm Yes, it does look like it. A couple of weeks ago I noticed some leaves were starting to turn here and there. We were still in July and I couldn’t quite believe what I was seeing. Then last week I saw these pistachio trees near my house! They seem to be one of the harbingers of Fall. On this same day I saw wild turkeys and deer, so yep, Fall is in the air. The nights are definitely chillier but the days are still way hotter than I enjoy. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply ↓ Karuna August 11, 2016 • 5:47 pm It has been cool here but all of a sudden it is hot. Will be 85-90 the next few days. It’s been in the 70’s. The tomatoes in my garden are just ripening but almost everything else is about done.

Or at least friends will. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply ↓ your thoughts, reflections are welcomed Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
