New Fruit

Bongo in profileI found an answer. And I didn’t even know there was a mystery.

I guess my person thought there was a mystery, but I wasn’t paying any attention.

So I didn’t even need my Detective Dog hat to find the answer.

Maybe my person should get a Detective Dog Person hat.

Here’s what happened.

Near my house, on the way to my trails, are some pine trees.

A few years ago my person noticed some blossoms peeking out from between the pines.

Pine trees don’t have blossoms and my person thought this looked pretty cool. She even made me stop while she took pictures of them.

Every year there were a few more blossoms peeking out, and the branches they were on grew leaves.

But that was as far as it went. The only mystery I could find was why my person stopped and took pictures every year.

But this year something else happened.

The tree grew fruit.

Fruit growing on a tree

Green fuzzy fruit.

But we didn’t get rain and the fruit didn’t get any bigger.

I didn’t think I’d ever find out what that fruit was.

It seemed to be a new kind of fruit that I’d never heard of before.

Green, puny fruit.

But I walked by that fruit one more time and something had changed.

Almonds growing on a tree

Now that tree had green, puny, split fruit.

My person said she knew what this fruit was and she never even got her Detective Person hat.

Oh nuts. It’s not fruit at all.

It’s an almond tree.

It’s Still January

Pink Manzanita BlossomsI don’t get it person. What’s the big deal? Why are you taking pictures of those bushes?

So it’s only January, so what? What’s January?

Those bushes have blossoms on them? Oh, now I get it. Those bushes are really mixed up. They’re not supposed to have blossoms this time of year, are they?

Do you think those blossoms got really bored and decided to peak out to see what was happening?

Maybe we’re going to get late snow this year and those blossoms thought they’d sneak out while there wasn’t any. Or maybe they got really mad at one of my trail dog friends who was trying to water them and they thought they’d better come out and give him what for.

I think I’d better check that out. What kind of bushes did you say these were? Manzanita?

Bongo Sniffing Manzanita

Well, little Manzanita blossoms. I find no evidence of any of my dog buddies around here. You’re going to have to come up with a better reason for showing yourselves or go back where you came from.
