Mini Orchard Haiku

Mini orchard plans
Hopes wrapped in a rush of green
Thriving is the prize

Mr. E and I are buying the house next door for a rental property.

 To christen it, and because we’ll have more room, we bought 4 fruit trees last weekend to add to the apple, pear, cherry, and peach trees currently in the yard.  Now we’ll have two more apples, a plum, and an apricot.

So far we’ve been getting fruit maybe every 3 or 4 years, due to late frosts…but one can only hope!

So, I can call it an orchard, yes?

    love your growing orchard of promises!

  5. Congrats on your recent acquisitions! I always love your Haiku!

  6. It doesn’t seem two minutes since we planted our first apple tree, now almost thirteen years! A curious thing you never know what you are going to get, fruit or no fruit, still the blossom is mostly beautiful! Blessings on your orchard! x

  7. It is indeed an orchard. If it’s not rented by December, let me know, I’ll rent it for a month! ( We lost our place in New Mexico last year when i got sick). One time, I asked someone that knew about trees and plantings, a horticulturist. I asked, “When is the best time to plant a tree?” The answer was simple, “Twenty years ago.”, I was told. You did good. I love the Haiku. A prize indeed!

    Much peace

  8. Yes indeed, you now have an orchard! I’m thinking of all the things you can make and enjoy from these fabulous fruit trees… I love that haiku line, hopes wrapped in a rush of green…

  9. I learned a new word in English today… first, I tasted it in my mouth. It has a special taste you know.. fruity. It sounds a bit like the Dutch word ‘boomgaard’ and I was almost sure that would be the meaning too, but I looked it up anyway. I was right. And yes, you may call this an orchard!

  10. Planting an orchard is a sign of hopefulness!

  11. Great haiku, “thriving is the prize” What a lovely orchard you will have.

  12. Yes, definitely an orchard. My brother loved planting trees and gardens. He got the love from our father. Now he is in a “new” house and reinventing the yards doing it all over again.
