Succeed and Soar’s “Life Well Lived” series started four months ago with a photograph of baby grapes. Three promises were made. To share:
- Inspiring quotes
- Photographs of nature and
- The baby grapes at harvest time.
While countless infant grape clusters crammed my back porch arbor last spring, none remained two months later. By mid-summer, all I found were the last grapes pictured atop this post. They disappeared a day later. What happened?
Three years ago, the first time my bounty vanished overnight, I was told birds love that fruit. Each year, I plan to enjoy some grapes before the phantom birds [I’ve never seen them]. Each August, I say: Maybe next year. And, maybe I’ll see the birds that love my grapes.
BTW, check out the comments on last week’s post. They’re heart warmers.
Reply. Comment below on this week’s topic. Do you have:
- Cures for pesty birds?
