God's Mysteries

There are a lot of mysteries in the world and the persimmon is one of them.  It's a beautiful tree that produces these wonderful, well, persimmon-colored globes.
However, it's been a rare occasion for me to actually find one ripe enough to eat that hasn't already been sampled by a forest creature.  They say that it's OK to eat them after the first frost and we had a huge one last Sunday morning so I merrily made my way down the path to the persimmon tree in hopes of getting that once in X-number years bite of the Delicious Persimmon.  
Don't believe everything you hear or read!
It was mouth-wrenchingly puckery...Still!
So...I brought one home, still on the branch, to view from my kitchen table.  Seems it's the safest way to enjoy 
God's little mystery.
