kumquat heaven!

how does this image relate to alice's kitchen? i'm visiting LA and this kumquat tree is one my dear mother planted in the front yard of the apartment building—a beautiful spanish style four-plex from the 1920s—she lived in after my beloved father died and many of my family members lived in at various times over the years—sisters, grandmother, aunt and uncle, nephews, nieces—the tribe. my father also planted a black fig tree and two apricot trees in the back. they're bare right now, but the kumquat mama planted is prolific with fruit...and they're scrumptious!

and beautiful!
