Growing Promise

A few days past I remembered to take my camera along on my walk.

Several weeks ago these trees hosted white blossoms. What hides among the spring leaves now? Can you find them? Small, green, round, and poking out at odd angles.

Orchard fruit starts small. Nothing new about that. You and I started out small. Even the tree holding this fruit started as a small thing that a human child could play giant beside. But these will not take years. We need to have patience lasting only months before the pears will hang full and ripe.
