Persimmons, Chokecherries, Footballs and Cargo Planes

Two leaves from American Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) and one of Japanese Persimmon (Diospyros kaki).

The leftmost leaf is from a variety called Juhl (aka, Yates) and the middle leaf is from Morris Burton.  The rightmost leaf is from a Japanese Persimmon named Saijo.

The American Persimmon leaves are flatter, narrower and a darker green.

The Japanese Persimmon leaf is "savoyed" like spinach, rounder and a bright spring green.

Gratuitous photo of chokecherries.
I was mowing some tall grass when the push mower inhaled this football.  Sporting equipment makes effective brakes for rotary equipment.
We had thunderstorms blow in around sunset

Can you see the contrail of the jet that just cleared the clouds?  I bet it was a cargo plane and I bet it was a bumpy ride.
