Dried Dragon Tree Leaves to Be Raked

This is what the autumn season looks like in my tiny point on the planet! We’ve been having a lot of strong, dry winds whipping through several nearby communities in the past few days. My much beloved dragon tree has shed many dried leaves as a result. Since I am the only one on my street (possibly my whole city) who has this tree, when the winds (hopefully) subside later this afternoon, I will be raking up many of these leaves from my and my neighbors’ yards. The leaves are nearly the length of my arm!IMG_3111

But I am lucky, though. I only have to rake leaves. About an hour ago, I was driving through a nearby city and saw that several branches from trees snapped off. I also saw one very large, mature tree uprooted.

I only have to do a “heavy raking” just a few times a year, so it’s still low maintenance. This particular tree is decades old and remains the grand lady of my neighborhood all year round!
