Fig-uratively speaking

The figs did finally ripen. One day they weren't fit to consume; the next day they were all gone. But some creature left a partial fig snagged on gate hardware, showing the pink innards of the green-skinned treat. This was seen by morning's first light; later in the day even that trace of this year's crop had vanished. We have seen our first green pecans this year, but so far there have been none in our yard.
