Festival 51 — fruits and nuts

The 51st edition of the Festival of the Trees is live at last, and it’s a tasty one. On display are hazel nuts, mirabelles, persimmons, paw-paws, pear trees, and more. This month’s bloggers remind us that all trees that are flowering plants bear fruit of some kind — pretty much everything but tree ferns and the extinct arboreal clubmosses. A forest is an orchard nobody planted. Or something like that. Anyway, 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.
