apricot season

Apricots have been growing in NM for a long, long time - they flourish in this climate (I can't find out, in a cursory search, if they came over with the Spanish, or are native - but I think of them as traditional trees here.  I also discovered the strange fact that apparently the Marines think that apricots are bad luck, and won't eat them).  Here are some rather scrubby looking apricots lying in the gutter on the way to work - which made me think to look for some local ones to buy in Eldorado on my way home.
