ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " Y "



Here we are at the next to the last letter of the alphabet.
Half the YEAR is gone and we are down to " Y ".
I wanted to show YOU some of our YEARLY YIELD of our own plums from our tree.



We have shared so many with friends and family.
There is just enough for one or two more YUMMY Plum Kuchens.
YESTERDAY we picked the last juicy batch.



Summertime often means YELLOWJACKET wasps like to join my picnic in the YARD.
I like this kind of YELLOWJACKET much better. No stings.
Just YOUNGSTERS having a great time riding one at the County Fair.



I had to add a shot from our trip to Kenya. Its hard to believe it was just one YEAR ago this month.
The YOUNG kids are in charge of caring for their YOUNGER brothers and sisters.
They have a much harder life than YOU or I do.

Great collection of Y's, - the plums just make my mouth water, and the thoughts of Kuchens make me want to go down and inspect the plum trees to see if they are ripe yet, - alas, I don't think so.

Mar said...

Beautiful collection for Y!! and some food for thought too...

ABC Wed: Y

I haven't had plum pie for such a long time, I wish you could send me some of those plums. I have a pear tree that is loaded with baby pears that should be ready in August.... perhaps we could do a fruit exchange??

fine family pic, too.

Oh! I love your Y! I always love your posts. They are a little bit whimsy and a little bit thought provoking and always filled with love. : )

Gayle said...

How lucky to have a plum tree in your yard. I'd like a peach tree, too. Yum!

Tumblewords: said...

Wonderful pictures! I'm finishing up the last of the frozen plums. The new crop won't be ready here until mid-September. Hope to have another good batch. They freeze well.

LD said...

Your Ys are so imaginative (and diverse) it makes for really fun viewing!

ChrisJ said...

Those plums look so good! A lot of fruits are too acidy for my taste, but not plums

jay said...

It's a very different way of life, to be sure! I do remember my mother (being the eldest of five) had to spend her life looking after her siblings too, but though life was hard and they were poor, she was happy.

Love the plums. Mmmm - they look good!

Dave said...

Yum, love the look of those plums Sue! One of my favourite fruits. - Dave

Gattina said...

Lots of nice Y pictures, sad for the children in Kenya.

Cheryl said...

The plums, the kids! Loved all your great captures.

AphotoAday said...

I could just "murder" those plums...
(((so sorry to hear about the bad news with your son and his job -- that's a serious situation and I definitely hope everything works out for him and the family))) (((what is this world coming to?)))

Beverley Baird said...

I don't know how you do it but you always have wonderful photos to go along with a wonderful story filled with the letter of the week!
Those plums look delicious!

Joy said...

The plums on the tree look beautiful and I would love to pick one out of the bowl, delicious. Cute wasp, and children. Doesn't seem a year since you were posting all those lovely African photos.

Shady Gardener said...

Ohmygoodness! Those plums! You are indeed fortunate to be able to have such a wonderful fruit, just waiting to be picked. :-)

Your other photos represent memorable moments. I may not do this meme again for awhile, but it's been fun!!

Ruth D~ said...

Fruit is so photogenic. I've never seen a bad picture of fruit... maybe because people who take pix of it are good! Who but a photographer would snap fruit?

Carol said...

Wonderful photos! Great post.

Laurie said...

My grandma used to make the best plum kuchen! Mmmmmm...I never had the chance to learn how.

Those plums look soooo tasty!

angelcel said...

Oh those plums look heavenly! I just love all the soft fruits available in the summer. :)
