The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, The heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand...
Deuteronomy 28:12

I went out to shoot
Butternut shoots...
A treasure to behold!
One of the reasons
Why some leaves,
On the trees
Wear their sleeves
Different from the rest,
And are dressed
In red & gold...
They were stressed
From dryness...
God in His due seasons
Blesses us now with rain
More not less
Butternuts we may gain.
Poetry by me AJP

We've had rain now off and on since Tuesday evening
and it rained again shortly after I shot this self portrait.
Most of June and July we have experienced cool
and dry weather. I would be surprised to see butternuts off this tree as it hasn't bore butternuts for several years...My poetry is wishful thinking...Maybe a miracle will happen:)
