more on figs :: 'mouse

While standing some 25 feet up on the ladder, ‘Mouse mused on the large gap in his horticultural knowledge which had become obvious about three years after buying a couple tiny little fig starts that look exactly like little grapevine starts and planting them along his back fence where he thought it would be nice to have a couple intertwined black and white fig vines.

Important facts we all should know:  In Chinese the fig is known as the “no flower fruit”; common figs develop parthenocarpically without pollination; the fruit is a syconium—an inverted flower of stem tissue surround both male and female parts; the seed-like things in figs are generally unfertilized ovaries that failed to develop; it is these unfertilized ovaries that provide the distinctive resinous flavor associated with figs.

whippletree :: boot

As Becky stood in the middle of the earth, under the shade of the whippletree, amidst a streaming tunnel of fluorescing colours, listening to the sounds of a million voices collide and pop violently against each other, she wondered who else there was like her, she wondered if she were the only one truly alive in this steamy, underground version of reality, if all these other ‘people’ were just figments of her fig-scented imagination, if she were the only person that constantly received these giddy, swirling eddies of emotion that seemed to be simultaneously enervating and, yet, as stimulating as the stars in the night sky, these emotions of colour and noise and ice-cream which would swish fluidly around her body or if, indeed, there was another, one more, just one other entity who could wave away entire disenchantments with an insignificant brush of their hand, one who merely needed to think of the pastels and the paisleys to end the suffering (or begin it), one more being who would subtly, but oh-so surely join her in this licorice all-sorts land and bring her, finally, to her bursting and beautiful beginning.
