A few months ago, I announced with great pride that we had an almond tree.
I was proud of my tree. I loved it's thick dark trunk that stretched strongly into the sky. I felt happy when it blossomed in early Spring. I wasted many hours imagining what I could do with the nuts that would grow on the tips of it's branches.
So you can imagine my shock when I looked at my almond tree today and found clusters of bright red cherries hanging from it!
