The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

Date Palm in our front yard
Last week the gardeners started getting ready for a new season of dates. The Palm tree in our front yard now has netted bags holding the unripened dates. As they get ripe and fall off the branch, they are caught in the net. The tie on the bottom allows the gardeners to release the dates that are ready for eating.
This tree on the walking path missed the netting. Lisa took the photo this morning so you can see the process of ripening. There are many different types of dates. They do look and taste different. Of course
our favourites are covered in chocolate and stuffed with cashews!
