The pavement ends in a long ribbon of dirt and rows of stone fruit. You recognize elephant heart plum and the blossoms of nectarines. Through clover and tiger lilies you see James approaching. He passes you a pluot across the barb wire. As you drive toward the house the juice marries with the scent of soil. It’s good to be home.
