The end of an era in Mom's garden...

The death of "The Fig Tree That Ate Stafford County, Virginia"...

Mom saved some cuttings that will hopefully grow into baby fig trees! "Son of Fig Tree" is doing well. Hopefully it will be joined by many siblings!

The pollen is really killing me. Everything is coated in yellow dust. My allergies are a real pain right now.
