From My Childhood Garden...

My mom is in our hometown in Germany at the moment and she sent this picture of the fruit ripening on one of the fig trees we planted in our garden there when I was a child:

Figs (Ficus carica)

Apparently the 'Souvenir de Malmaison' rose we planted next to the front door is in full bloom as well, and the strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo) I brought as a small sapling from Portugal fifteen years ago is now actually a small tree towering over its corner of the garden. I have not been back in a while, but it is nice to see that at least some of the plants I used to tend to are still flourishing.
