Burnt orange against
light blue backdrop of sky
persimons suspended
Are you sweet or bitter
only the monkeys know for sure

Autumn decorations include persimon trees. They are bright and taste great unless you get one of the bitter variety. The monkeys leave these until they are really hungry. In our yard we have a persimon tree that is bare. The monkeys have gotten all but the few of our sweet ones that we could salvage . These bitter ones will stay on until it gets really cold, and the monkeys are really hungry.
