It is summertime.  It is hot and only the figs thrive in this heat  This one tree is against the garage in hopes that it will give us some shade but the tree is rather small.  The leaves break out early in the spring and they are the first to turn color (brown) and fall from the tree as soon as there is a hint of autumn in the air.

The other year, I made fig preserves and they turned out very sweet.  This year, we are going to eat them as soon as we can pick them.  Our competition are squirrels and birds.  That is OK:  we share.

Figs don't last very long once picked and the greenish ones don't mature.  Let's eat 'em and enjoy 'em!

Thank you for visiting my blog.
