I recently mentioned that the weather is still warm here? Most of the trees remain green, but there are a series of Chinese Pistache trees on the driveway into our RV park that are turning beautiful colors. We’re familiar with those trees because the median on 25th St. in Wichita is lined with them. One thing we’ve enjoyed each year is watching how those trees, while planted at the same time, change colors on different schedules. While some turn orange and others turn maroon, one may be completely deep red before another starts to change. Every year they all put on a gorgeous show.
One area near the peak of the tallest mountain outside of town is a vibrant yellow, but none of the other vegatation around is even similar.
Just for everyone’s information, an RV park is not on the list of parents’ favorite places to take their children trick or treating. Since there’s a mobile home park attached here, we were prepared, but no little ones knocked. We hadn’t had trick or treaters in Wichita since my nephew Quentin and his family left town when his kids were little. John’s a junior at K-State and Becca is 16 now, I think, so it’s been a while.
