You put dead-looking sticks in the cold ground and just a few years later they do this

Lots of June sun, a few hot days–and suddenly everything’s rushing to ripeness.

Even the mango tree has decided to try again for a crop this year.

Judging by how much time the birds spend not coming to the feeder, I’m guessing the hawks in the redwood are a big reason why my fruit has been pretty much left alone. The cinnamon I sprinkled on top of the fence near the peaches didn’t hurt any, either; a squirrel will not step in it, not if it can help it.

Such growth, such beauty!

Wow, it all looks great! Natural miracles (with lots of human help, of course).

A sour cherry tree! We had one in our backyard for years, until one morning, my mom opened the curtains leading to the yard and the tree horizontal.
Every year I hit the farmer’s market during the very short sour cherry season, buy many quarts, pit and cook them! I will share with the family if asked VERY nicely. Enjoy them!

“The tree WAS horizontal”

It’s like a treasure hunt going out in the yard at this time of year, isn’t it?!
