The Summer season is full of Abundance.
At times it overflows.
Plums have been raining down on me the past two weeks.
Thankfully friends have enjoyed the bounty too.
Tomatoes are ripening on the vine.
Gravenstein apples are my favorite and at the farm stand only 80 cents a pound.
How could I resist apples in the freezer for pies in the winter?
And of course a few peaches came home from the farm stand too.
Pears, a gift from a friends tree.
The grapes on my back fence have been ignored, but the squirrels are enjoying.
Finally I was able to enjoy this morning.
The figs will soon be ripe and ready to enjoy.
The tea bushes are blossoming and showing the joy of the season.
Abundance of the garden is a JOY of the season.

"I try to be grateful for the abundance of the blessings that I have,
for the journey that I'm on and to relish each day as a gift."
~James Mc Greevey

"To live a pure unselfish life,
one must count nothing as one's own
in the midst of abundance."

Enjoy the abundance of the season!!!

Wow Marilyn - you have all the makings of the most fabulous fruit salads, and plenty leftover to freeze for those delectable fruit pies you make. I should know being a lucky taster!

What do have planned for your figs when they ripen?
