I’m still getting the hang of how deciduous trees work. Yes, there are some in Australia but they have to compete with the natives for attention, and they only drop their leaves in winter out of politeness. I walk past this spot (pictured above) each day and from experiences in the winter I know it’s one of the least sunny corners on campus. And there’s this tree that still has its green leaves long after all the others have gone red, brown and dropped. I guess it could be to do with its species, but I’d like to think it is to do with the tree being a bit slow to get to everything. Starting spring 6 weeks later than its neighbours and not finishing the summer thing til it’s ready.
