DSC_8771Surprisingly, there is a lot of fruit on the tree this year.

I MUST go out today and put bird netting over these low hanging boughs before the squirrels start their theivery. They can have the ones up high.

The tree has become a wonderful source of shade over the years since we arrived here. In 2000, it was spindly and damaged. Now it must be 30 feet across!

      Yes…only watering 10 minutes twice a week. Maybe apricots like less? Or maybe it is desperatly trying to reproduce before dying. A very large aleppo pine at the other end of the lot is looking a bit sad these days.
