For a tree that's just outside the office window, I sure don't pay much attention to it unless new leaves are coming, or the fruits are ripe and the whole thing turns into a noisy bird restaurant. I don't think I've ever been conscious of a fig flower though it appears I am not to blame. But the last few days, while trying to work on my tax returns, I could not help but stare at the red bits found on the two young fruits, slightly above center of this pic. It's bigger and much brighter than seen (or not) here, they almost look like tiny Pohutukawa blooms sitting on a fig tree. OK, back to work.
