Spring has begun to spring here in Hasting in New Zealand. See below....
Two of the plum trees are going for it. Blossoms everywhere. The one on the left is the one I hacked about a bit. It has few blossoms. That makes up for last year when I could have harvested twenty or thirty buckets of plums. The second and third plum trees are doing well..
This is the third plum tree. It will be loaded with plums as it is blossoming heavily.
Even the apricot has blossoming.
One of the first apricot blooms. They are later here than the plums. They are ripe mid January. That is the height of Summer.
Even the trimmings from the trees have enough life left in them to bloom just a little.
Think of all the fruit that could have grown but was WASTED!!! Well they are nice plums, but the other trees will make up for the loss.
