Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt for this week is “Future“.
I was looking for a suitable photo to post to represent “Future” theme. Today was Linda’s One Liner Wednesday prompt and suddenly an opportunity presented itself to kill two birds with one stone. Please don’t get me wrong. I am not for any killing, specially birds.
Weather had been really nice here for last couple of days and I was working in my garden to take care of various plants. Orange trees and apple tree are in full bloom. The apple tree is small and comparatively young. It also did not give us any fruits last year. As I was coming back from my morning walk with my dog, Skooby, I looked at the blooming apple tree in my front yard. I hoped that this year it will bear fruits. My wife had been talking to the gardener for some work to be done for a vegetable garden and she had talked with him regarding some needed care for the apple tree. As I was looking at the tree and the apple blossoms, the one liner quote suddenly came to my mind that would also work for the photo challenge prompt “Future”. So here it is and for good measure, I am including my entry for One Liner Wednesday prompt also.
A present not taken well care of will not bear fruit in future.

Orange blooms are from a California navel orange tree in our backyard. Couple of years back we had so many oranges that few branches broke because they could not bear the weight of the fruits. Last year there were barely a few on the same tree. My wife had been caring for that tree during last year and looking at the new blossoms, we are hopeful that it will bear fruits this year.
Let’s see what the “Future” beholds.
