This has been a good year for the old pear tree.
It overhangs our fence
and drops large hard green pears into our garden.
A fair exchange for all the weeds I think.
We planted a Victoria plum and it has just started to crop in the last couple of years.
A glut for us is a dozen plums.
But this - we never expected.
When I was ready to call it a day on the other side of the fence,
I glimpsed three fuzzy pale yellow fruits
hanging from a feeble little tree.
It hardly seems possible, but in that dank, east facing,
weed infested garden
a peach tree has grown.
Just like that.
