In late November, we had a couple of mornings with temperatures just below freezing.
This photo shows a hedge with some frost damage a few days later (3 Dec.), along with two other signs of the season: a Hachiya persimmon laden with fruit, and a navel orange tree with fruit just starting to color up. (The orange also shows the results of some major limb breakage from fruit weight and high winds back in October; yes that’s one orange tree).
Fall/winter season is well underway.
The most recent evidence of that is four straight days of essentially uninterrupted rain.
Some more seasonal shots (all from late November or early December):
