I’ve been talking to Miss Bee about Autumn. I’ve explained that the leaves change colour and fall off. I’ve explained why they fall off. The sorts of colours (like sunset colours, like the end of the day). I’ve pointed out that not all trees lose their leaves “deciduous” some keep their leaves “evergreen”.
It must have all sunk in.
Driving along she pointed out the window at some eucalyptus trees “look mummy, evergreens”.
A friend pointed to the autumn coloured leaves and asked her “what’s that?”, probably expecting “yellow leaf” as the reply. Nope “deciduous tree”.
