I live in a part of the world where we only dream of four seasons- in reality we have the summer, an extremely short monsoon and then a cool summer. So I’ve always dreamt of being somewhere where I could see fall colours.
However, there is one tree where I live that goes a small way to fulfilling my dream. Every year round about now the Terminalia Catappa aka the badam tree aka the Indian almond has it’s leaves turning a rich shade of red and pink just before the fall to the ground- just like fall! I could almost believe I was somewhere where winter is just around the corner except it is a long summer that stares us in the face.
