Bird-Netting Update

The bird netting has done its job keeping the sparrows away from the ripening persimmons, but it has also caught all the leaves as they have fallen
Most years the persimmon leaves turn beautiful red shades before dropping. This year, when the autumn colours have been wonderful everywhere else, it seems the persimmon isn't bothering! At least the fruit are autumn-coloured.
