Are they late?

The loquat blossoms are opening up, and they're attracting plenty of pollinators. Aren't these flowers sometimes open as soon as the first week in November? A look back is in order when there's time. All pecans are accounted for. There are none on trees, and those that fell to the ground have been squirrel-captured. The cantaloupes reached a certain state of attraction and were sampled during the night by one creature or another. Exposure to the air where bitten into made the contents of the cantaloupes pungent in scent. To the compost pile they go, where no doubt they'll be consumed in their entirety by an opossum or a raccoon or a fox, or just by insects.
