Our small peach tree has at least two dozen ripening fruits on it this year. Last year there were only a handful. This tree bears surprisingly good peaches. I've thought of planting some of the seeds each year, and then forget. There's room in the yard for a few more trees of that size. I might try sticking a pot in some conspicuous location to serve as a reminder.

Every fruiting or flowering plant is doing well this year, except for the dying cherry tree, of course. That might have been replaced long ago, but again I kept forgetting. It's odd that we've never gotten a volunteer from all the overripe, bird-pecked cherries that fall to the ground each year. But then the tree (and the peach, too, for that matter) might be a hybrid of some sort with sterile seeds. The fruit and nut trees were all here when my parents bought the place, so I have no idea what varieties they are.

I've been wondering how my spider looks at me. It gives no indication that it is aware of my presence at all. It's spot on the wall is less than two feet from my head when I'm sitting at the computer. I wonder if I'm just a big presence to it, the way drifting storm clouds are a big presence to me? Does it have any idea that I'm watching it? It would be interesting to experience the world as a spider perceives it, just for a while.

I'm uncomfortably hot again. Tomorrow will be worse. A whole string of 100+ degree days are predicted. I'm not happy about that.

I just got about ten LJ notifications from the last three days, all in one lump. I guess the e-mail has been fixed. For now. :-P
