snap of the day

Growing up in New Mexico, I had never tasted a fresh fig until we moved to Texas.  Oh my – what I missed all of those years!

Postscript: but  how I love New Mexico piñons!

O excellent! I love long life better than figs.

  1. Those look really good… I spent time in southern France, these were growing EVERYWHERE. I was doing plenty of walking, and wouldn’t go for more than 10 minutes before seeing a handful of fat, ripe figs!
