88° and Leaves Falling

It's a little crazy being in such a warm climate during Fall. It still feels like summer to my Oregon brain (it's 88° today!) and yet the stores are filling up with boots and scarves and Halloween candy. Very strange. Being from Oregon, I'm used to rain at Christmastime instead of snow, but I'm definitely not used to not having a Fall season! I'm guessing Winter here will actually feel more like an Oregon Fall, minus all the buckets of rain.

Speaking of Oregon... it has come to my attention that only people from the Pacific NW know the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees. It blows my mind that someone may not know the difference to something that seems so obvious to me, but then again I've been an Oregonian for my entire 34 years, so it's very possible I just haven't spent enough time around people from other parts of the country. ;)

With that in mind... I'm really curious if you know the difference? (And if you don't, leave a comment below telling me what part of the country you're from).

  1. I definitely know the difference between an evergreen and a deciduous tree. My first job was at a plant nursery that specialized in trees, shrubs and other perennials, so definitely a piece of knowledge that I picked up there... Plus, I think we learned that in school, too.

    1. Yes! Thank you! I distinctly remember learning that in school, too, so I am glad to hear that I'm not just remembering this knowledge b/c I grew up in Oregon.
