There it was, in plain sight.
An early morning reality check glaring at me
It sat there as a bold statement saying
“GOT HERE BEFORE YOU…. HA HA HA HA!”
Yep, the birds and squirrels were in cahoots again .
My precious peaches had been covered up with bird netting and recycled Trader Joes Sweet potato bags … for what ?
The competition had done what they do so well .
And as a statement of defiance
One single completely cleaned off pit sat far away from my single peach tree.
It was strategically placed near the recycling bin so I would be sure to see it.
Of course it lead me to review the tree and wince at the activity they had already done with my peaches even though they were not ripe yet.
And so I was reminded in that “mindful moment ” that they were many steps ahead of me . I had a choice to make . Let it go? Excuse me. Hell no.
The coverings of the peaches just got more intense… to be continued.
