We have Figs!

After several years of babying the brown turkey fig tree (brought from Monticello, Jefferson's place), we finally received edible figs this year! Both Diana and I were ready to cut it down and dig it out, but now we will implement even more measures to bring us figs next year (hope springs eternal...).
They are luscious and mouth-watering. While you want to eat them all right away, you also want to savor them.

Sunlight on grasses and cow skulls round out today's view - there is never a shortage of beauty within just a few steps of the back door.

Great pics per usual. Still in houston, quilt festival starting, my sister not doing well at all. We don't expect her to last the week.
