Four years now I have been wishing for my tree to produce figs, I mean a decent crop, not the 2 or 3 it has been offering up these last couple of years. I prayed for them. I begged Mother Nature to intervene. I asked the Garden Fairies for a helping hand. In the end I came to the conclusion that I had planted the tree in the wrong place, and then… this year I have finally gotten my wish! Toward the end of summer we started harvesting ripe figs from our tree. They have been delicious. But then the weather began to turn, and a few of the fig leaves began to turn with it.
We still have many figs on the tree so I figured either they would wither and die, or stay on the bare tree until next Spring when they will finish ripening. My sister-in-law experienced that with her fig tree so I figured all these other figs would just ripen at that time. And as you can see, we have plenty of figs.
But amazingly, each day we go outside we find more ripe figs to harvest!
And they have never tasted better.
And I think they photographed pretty well too!
I’m linking up with my Be Still class for two prompts; the 1st picture for ‘2 things’ and the last two pictures for ‘inspired by a painting’.
What surprises has the Fall season bestowed upon you?
Thanks so much for stopping by.
