Fruit Trees

 When my mom, Mildred, and Tim's dad, Richard, passed away three years ago, we planted a fruit tree in honor of each of them.  A dear friend had given us a gift card to do so.  We decided on self pollinating fruit trees; they bear fruit on their own, without an entire orchard around them.  Mom is a plum and Dad is a peach. (He always was a peach of a guy, really).

Recently Tim was given a fig tree from a fellow yardener and we purchased a nectarine tree to add to what we now call the fruit tree garden.
