Wishing I Had This Bounty!

"What wondrous life is this I lead!

Ripe apples drop about my head;

The luscious clusters of the vine

Upon my mouth do crush their wine;

The nectarine and curious peach

Into my hands themselves do reach;

Stumbling on melons, as I pass,

Ensnared with flowers, I fall on grass."

Andrew Marvell, Thoughts in a Garden

My peaches were sparse this year, and if I stumble on anything its probably a garden hose! Oh well, on to fall gardening!
