I know, some of you are saying, “Cute… really?” Well, bees truly are cute. Just look at that sweet little face in the photo. How can that be anything but cute? Especially knowing that behind all the buzzing, flybys and pollen collectin’ in a single day is a simple miracle. One of God’s divine plans. Pollination. Which ultimately leads to… sweet, lip smacking juicy FRUIT! There’s only one word for all this sticky goodness… Scrumpdelilicious.
To think that in about mid-May we’ll begin harvesting the first of our Flavor Delight Aprium fruit ~ our first fruit tree to come into harvest. Yes, it happens that fast! Just a few weeks ago our trees were waking up from their winter nap, then seemed to suddenly burst into color puffs of flowers like a dry corn kernel bursting open into a puffy piece of popcorn, and now this…
I have to say that I am smitten by the whole “cycle of life” thing our trees so eloquently illustrate in our home orchard. And just when things appear to calm down and the honey bees focus their attention elsewhere, our Aprium will begin to glow with the color of sunshine. Deep rich golden goodness. The scent in the air will shift from a floral scent to a glorious apricot sweetness attracting all who wish to sample its promise of taste bud delight.
With all this amazing insight and visual proof of divine order, I’m unable to get past the thought that there are people out there who feel the cycle of life is happenstance. A spin of the wheel so to speak. How can such a beautifully orchestrated process come from something other than heavenly? Simple answer… it’s all part of God’s plan and is absolutely lovely if you ask me 🙂 So grab yourself a piece of fresh-picked sun-warmed fruit, sit back, sink your teeth into all its sweet promise and take comfort in today’s joy and blessings.
Have an awesomely sticky sweet day 🙂
