Festival #38 bears fruit

From our perspective in eastern and central North America, this was the earliest edition ever:

It’s here!! Another edition of the Festival of The Trees, this time almost 12 hours earlier than usual because it’s coming to you all the way from the tropics of Asia!

Jackfruits, durians, and guavas, oh my! Summer fruit-bearing trees are just one of the topics in this edition’s featured blog posts and articles, though. You’ll also encounter black walnut trees (both with and without climbing black snakes), a hazelnut tree, a nectarine tree that split under the weight of its fruit, a short animation about a pear tree, sycamores in Arizona, witches’ hair, and more. Go visit.

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
