Growing

Uncle Grover plums and
mulberries ripen
as birds steal the cherries.
 Sweet peas
 and blackberries bloom.
Figs that Dad planted
 are beginning
to fruit
as these dream of becoming grapes one day.

Hello, everything looks like it is growing well. The fresh fruits will be awesome. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

These are all yours? I am very impressed. It is a very exciting mixture, and I know you must have lots of birds that love them as much as I do.

You are living in fruit garden of paradise! We had mulberries but didn't pick them soon enough! Instead we used them as face paint.

You have got some good eating coming up. Hope the birds leave you some. My plums are about the same size. You make me want to plant some grapes too.

Eventually our fig tree/bush will be big enough that we will be left some figs after the birds and animals are through. ^_^
Have a safe, blessed Holiday week, Gail.

The variety of things to be found on your land never ceases to amaze me! Such a wonderful place, and you have done so much to keep it that way!
