Someday we hope to have this:
a nice big fig tree

But for now, this is what we have:

Kind of pathetic, isn’t it?

moving right along…..
Any talk of figs always, always brings me back to this wonderful hotel
 in St. Remy in Provence called
Sous les Figuiers” (under the fig trees)
It is truly lovely. I recommend it highly. It’s right in town so you can walk everywhere, and yet it is set back and oh so quiet. But the best part is that the fig trees, which are everywhere, seem to be constantly bearing fruit and you are free to pick whatever you want. 
Our room, with huge fig tree!
Just as I was finishing this post today, in came another story about figs from my friend MJ at 

MJ lives near me, well…sort of… so we met up recently for the first time. She is wonderful! She is over in Provence right now and this post all about figs is well worth reading. So go on over!
And while you’re there, take a look at her wonderful slide shows. Oh, to be in Provence!
As to my own fig tree:
check back in another year, and we will see. I’m hoping for a bumper crop!
