What does Mark 13:28 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Mark 13:28

Now learn a parable of the fig tree
Our Lord was now upon the Mount of Olives, in one part of which fig trees grew in great plenty, and one, or more, might be near, and in view; and it was the time of year, the passover being at hand, for its putting forth:

when her branch is yet tender;
and soft and opening, through the sap now in motion:

and putteth forth leaves;
from the branches:

ye know, that summer is near;
from such an appearance on the fig tree; (See Gill on Matthew 24:32).
