superior nettles

The trees in town are competing to put on the most spectacular show, almost all of them, except my big, strong nettle trees, which are above it all.

There are golden leaves over every wall, in every park, and they are almost arrogant about it. This weekend it is supposed to rain, and I wonder if they will all be wasted by Monday.

But my nettle trees, they might still be clad come next week, and still green at that.
