/*23 Breaths: Saturday in July*/

Saturday in July

It's a Saturday in "July" and seeing as the swell has dropped


it will be a gardening day

This time of the "Summer"

and I'm using the word in the loosest possible way
(its still cloudy most of the day)


the tomato plants are full, the giant sun flowers are at their peak and the apple tree is acting strange.

"How can a tree act strange", you ask?

Especially one as normal and docile as an apple?

Let me explain,

I'll be working in the garden,

well not working really just kind of standing there,

taking it all in

my favorite part of the gardening really

and an apple will suddenly fall off the tree

and roll over to me and stop

right at my feet.

Far out!

Is the tree thanking me for being a good caretaker of the grounds?

Watering, fertilizing, and weeding when appropriate?

I know the pruning last fall was a point of contention for a while

but we seem to have grown past it.

So is the tree offering me a bit of fruit as an offering?

Or is it just saying

"Eat Me"?

I expect this from the cat

But the apple tree?

Hmmm

Well at least the Tour de France is finally in the mountains!

salutations à mes amis qui ont passé tellement de temps récents sur mon site humble

Or perhaps...
the tree is saying
"I want to eat YOU."
Maybe it's evolving
(no sharp teeth yet)
into a stealthy
fruit predator?
Gardener beware!
