My red leaf plum tree has some fruit this year. Last year, I got one! This year, the tree was absolutely covered with blossoms, but the fertilization rate must have been very low, because the fruit is pretty sparse. But at least I'll have some - they are a red-fleshed, red-skinned plum, and very tasty! Not quite ripe yet - still hard, but it shouldn't be long, now.
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
