My post on figs triggered a memory in one reader – a restaurant under a fig tree in Portugal! They actually have to warn patrons about the falling figs, and I would suppose if one falls on you it would be yours to eat. They look delicious as you can see in the tiny picture, bottom right.
Thank you Joy! You are a delightful, interactive reader. Just sayin’…
As you may have noticed by now, this alphabet challenge is about a lot more than the alphabet, a lot more than practicing our writing, a lot more than seeing if we can post something consistently for a month. If you will treat it as such, it’s like a month long party with chances to meet and get to know a very eclectic bunch of people. And you can go in your pajamas… How sweet. I hope everyone is enjoying the interaction. I sure am.

Funny enough, the first thing I thought of when I saw the post yesterday was: “Virtue? A fig! ‘Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. ” 😁 This is it with us, Shakespearean nerds.
Oh wow, that’s funny. Figs have been around a long time and worked their way into a lot of literature it seems.
Would you believe I’ve never in my life tasted a fig? The closest I’ve had is a Fig Newton.
As far as this A to Z party, you are so right! Last year I just did the challenge, but this year I’ve been partying through April and lovin’ it. 🙂
Good for you! It’s so much fun if you really participate- but it’s a time commitment. All good things are.
SHIRLEY, Seems as I can vaguely remember a kiddy song about ”up a fig tree”?? Or am i just thinking about ‘fig newtons’. Always liked them JCB
I don’t think I learned that song, but there could have been one. Thanks for reading JC.
My pleasure Shirley, I can vouch that the figs fall with regularity in June, but they usually splat so not always suitable to eat without a trowel.
