Two weeks ago the first blossoms appeared on my first [= number One] plum tree. I started pruning.
Now spring is really here with all the blossom trees in the garden getting going.
The blossoms on my first 'Blackboy' peach are just opening. It is stunted because of the effect of the two bamboos nearby. They slow growth of plants near them.
From close-up you can see the beautiful color in the blossoms.
The daughter plant is doing very well.
This tree has grown tooo big for a tree just outside a window, but is beautiful and a strong producer of fruit.
The first plum tree, plumtree #1, is no longer blossoming, it is 'leaving'. The leaves are still small but are growing everyday.
Plumtreee #3 is going "bananas"
It will produce a great crop of the very best plums. When the "Banana-plums" appear, I'll show them on the website.
Behind the house is a variety of Magnolia.
Lots of blossoms waiting to open can also be seen.
The blooms are perfect. Very susceptible to bruising, and the fruit is delicious........ to worms.
