A brisk wind was blowing when I finnished my early morning job, feeding the ducks and chickens and turned to go indoors.
I try to live in the moment and as my eyes swept over the garden the pear tree hit my eye, it was shouting help me.
A young tree and laden with pears, it was bowed and swaying wildy in the wind. I had checked it frequently lately, only yesterday the pears were still firmly attached and I had had thought not ready yet and resisted picking. As I reached for a pear it fell off in my hand, the rest came off easily, using my skirt as a basket I carried them indoors. It taught me there is value in living in the moment, even with plants, not one windall..
