I took my normal walk around the backyard taking photos, as is my M.O., and realized only after looking at them on my computer this morning that each photo represented a first in my garden. This is the first time I’ve seen my Eva’s Pride peach tree produce fruit:
And the first time I’ve seen the Double Delight nectarine I bought in January leaf out and bloom:
And seen the flower up-close:
And the first time I’ve seen the Thompson Red Seedless grape do this:
And the first time I’ve seen my favorite specimen (Red Baron peach) blooming against the backdrop of my favorite backyard retreat after being completed last summer:
Thankful for firsts.
