photo (93)My neighbor Clara sent an email to everyone to bring baskets and pick loquats.  I was not sure what to expect, but found this newfound fruit spectacularly juicy with the consistency of a plum. As it turns out, logquats are also called Japanese Plum.  We chatted while we picked,  and she shared stories from her childhood. and how her mother came to visit, bringing with her one seed from an old neighbor’s loquat tree.  Clara planted the seed and our whole neighborhood is enjoying the fruit from the tree.

 May we be kind and generous with what the Lord has shared with us!
