The Year of the Persimmon
A wonder and a joy, and something unprecedented: Kentucky persimmons in January, fresh from the tree.
So far, each day of 2019 I walk to the Living Arts and Science Center, pull a perfectly ripe persimmon off a tree and eat it, marveling.
Here’s nature’s pudding, not beautiful but bountiful in 2018 beyond any other year.
