Teaseled

Late autumn (or as we should call it, fall) in the Los Altos hills, above Silicon Valley, is the end of the long dry summer.

High above the valley, up in the Monte Bello preserve, the grass is golden brown, drooped down by the first of the autumn rains, ready to pass away in the winter cold. Standing high above them is a teasel head, saved from the ubiquitous deer by its spines. It stands proud, its seeds long gone, a reminder of the fruitful days of summer.
