|Granny Smith Apples|
The days may be warm here, but the mornings are always cool and inviting. Today I woke up before six a.m., and decided to do a little walk around the property and check on things before the sun came up. I checked vines, fruit, and growth. It's amazing how much plants can change just within a few years; the fig tree we planted in 2013 that was just up to my knees is now as tall as I am, and the cherry trees which were sticks now have sizable trunks and stand well over 7 feet tall.
On the more short-term end of things, the pumpkins are growing in anticipation of fall, and summer squash is in its usual state of over-abundance.
For some folks, Sunday is a church day, and I have total respect for that, but I have always found God more present in the land than in the cathedral. And so this morning left me especially grateful for the fruit, for the clouds, and for the good land we live on.
Happy Sunday, everyone.
