My first guava dropped. No that's not a metaphor for anything. I have a guava tree in my backyard. I don't pick them off the tree. I just pick up the windfalls. At the height of the season I have to pick them up 3 or 4 times a day. I can fill half a shopping bag in a day. We had a great year. My tree is loaded. I will be knee deep in guavas soon. Here's just the tip of one branch on my upper deck

@TigerLily So you've actually done the math on this taking into account exactly how tall you are to how many guavas piled up into what size room or space that will contain you and they, the gauva? Hmm I don't think you've thought this one through all the way.

I like your deck color

No math required. I have photo evidence from last year's nectar-making process. A very poor year. Too dry. Only ankle deep. But this will be a banner year. Knee deep for sure

Your lawn is so lovely @KSM . Makes me green with envy. Tall fescue? I had to settle for Bermuda but still allows me to wiggle my toes barefoot in the green stuff. Makes me happy

Thank you for the kind words. But I don't allow bear feet on my lawns. ;D

Some flowering yucca plants in the mountains of Florida.  Oooops, let me rephrase that.  Some flowering yucca plants in the Florida Mountains, which happen to be in Southern New Mexico.

How dare you? I’ve climbed Mt. Dora, the highest point in Florida - 60-feet above sea level.

Did you ever climb the pyramid burial ground over by the Crystal River?

It’s a shame that most of the site was destroyed over the years but it is worth a couple of hours. I went swimming with the manatees in the morning and then went and toured the park in the afternoon.

I was looking at this picture from last August and darned if I didn't see our old friend Mr. Chimp C. Apnea staring down from the rain cloud.  That's him just above the top of the tree.

Edit to the above.  I should have wrote 'Chimp's face staring down from the rain cloud.'  Not his body.

Chimp will tell you it is because he is a god.
