saved by the stake!

In the spring, I gazed up at its blossom, wondering whether we'd be gorging on apricot jam this summer.  The tree's so close to our boundary, I've been worried a new fence would mean its demise.  This week, a stake has gone up and marked the apricots as safe.  Our lifetime supply of apricots is ensured!
Yesterday I inspected the fruit, mentally calculating pots of jam!  We'll have to try and net or bag the fruit as there will be a lot of competition from the local bird life.  It's so exciting to think we have our very own apricot tree.  There's also a fig, mandarin and orange - a great start!

Jam, anyone?!
