An elderly friend needed a ride today and so I got to spend some time with Gail.

We talked gardening and trees a bit and she laughed as she remembered what her father had planted when she was a kid: a bitter almond tree and a sweet almond tree. She told me, The squirrels never touched the sweet almonds. Because of the bitter!

If they only knew, right?

This feels very much like one of Aesop’s fables. Too timid because of one bitter experience will rob you of many, much sweeter experiences! Those squirrels were just helping to tell the story… 🙂
