Today’s post isn’t entirely about trees, but the product of a particular tree. I’ve always liked the idea of growing fruit trees. Apricot, nectarine, peach, lemon, lime and apple seemed good for starters.
But not having anything remotely resembling a green thumb, it’s been a bit of an uphill battle. Occasionally we’ve had a laden branch or two, but it’s been slim pickings generally. Except this year the apple decided to “go forth and multiply” enthusiastically.
The birds are full as a goog* and have waddled off elsewhere, and there’s only so many I can stew.
A Drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more, no less.
* This is a strange expression. (Now there's an understatement!) When I was a child it was used as in the phrase "A googy egg". But to be "full as a goog" implies one has either eaten or drunk too much. Weird. I'm off to do some research.
