It’s here, it’s here! The big wedding day has finally
fawned dawned! Here is what we found on the south side of the front wall yesterday. Apparently its mother thinks I have time to baby sit this future orchard snacking fellow! It reminded me of the conflict in The Yearling, the 1938 novel written by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. I felt it would be a very bad omen to have any harm come to this little one, so we left him alone until his mother came back to claim him, something I will remember when he is 5 times as big as he is now! Apparently there is a good reason for her to leave a youngster like this alone for several hours a day but I don’t have time to explain about that theory but it does have to do with our coyote population.
We have lots and lots to do and I’m off and running! I’m sure it will be a Berry Happy Day! (Peter and I picked over 11 pounds of these lovely giants yesterday, bringing our two days of picking to just over 20 pounds YTD.) Stay tuned for some wedding pictures after the fun is over. I wouldn’t want to spoil any surprises with premature photos of the event!
