With the last flush of strawberry guavas I made the puree into jam a few weeks ago. Didn’t snap the picture until about six departed to friends and family.

Only two ‘Gordon’ apples this year and they’re smallish and imperfect. There used to be a neighborhood pollinator and we’d harvest a decent crop. My husband intends to learn how to graft so we can make use of the good scaffolding and hopefully get more apples.

The Sunday church bouquet: gathered eucalyptus, Mexican tulip poppies from the alley, a late ‘Hot Cocoa’ rose, yarrow, rue and milkweed.
