Twin apricots from my dwarf tree's second year of bearing fruit on my dwarf-friendly balcony.  The tree gulps water like a parched sailor and attracts an audience of very interested birds at first  fruitblush.  I foil them with bird netting that requires no less artistry than decorating the Christmas Tree.  I remind myself of the holiday cartoons picturing a hapless home owner impossibly tangled in strings of lights...
 All this for a yield of about ten apricots.  And yes, they taste delicious!

Oh Apricot, Oh Apricot,
you live in a pot
and I like you a lot.
