Fig Tree

Exciting little fig tree has grown and it was finally time to take it out of its' warm sheltered place in my sun room to a big plot of ground of its' own..I always dreamed of having my own little fig tree, reminding me of the luscious delights I've experienced from fig trees in Italy and France, Yet closer to home reminding me of the fig trees both of my grandparents grew in their little concrete backyard in South Philadelphia and West Philadelphia.

As a child I didn't understand why both grandparents planted their fig trees and what it meant to them..but now I is a reminder of a taste, a time in Italy..where the figs are a season, a time ,a taste..For me too now it is a memory of a taste, a season in Italy..
