Springtime and everythings growin’


Thursday 30 April, 2015 by Uncle Spike

Spring is here, and almost gone I guess you could say. We are rapidly marching towards summer, as the mercury rises almost to the 30 spot most days (or 86 in old money). Most things are green, or colourful, and loving the weather, as is this young grapefruit tree – a new addition to our troops.




The very burned avocado tree was another victim of the cold snap – but is finally kicking back into life. Not sure it’ll do much this year, but it’s a promising start nonetheless.






The ground roses are starting to come into flower at long last.




The orchard is looks like a confetti throwing contest has been held out there, as all the blossom falls, helped by a few million bees who have descended on our patch to siphon off the pollen. But that does mean that the baby citrus fruit are now appearing.




The sweet cherries are just starting to appear too.




Sour cherries always beat the sweet cherries – both just as yummy though!




And yes, the roses…. 🙂

  3. It’s still very cold, if sunny here. I envy you your warmth and being able to grow citrus. 🙂
