Spring!

And it's time to harvest the fruit from our dwarf Blood Orange tree! Direct Chicken Supervision was of course provided at all times.

I'm always amazed at the amount of fruit that little 12 foot tree can hold! And just in time, too. The thing is blooming and new fruit is forming...see the little tiny green ball in the middle?

Now I have to figure out what the heck to DO with all that fruit within the next few days...

Meanwhile, a few pictures of the first day of Spring:

The blossoms on the white nectarine tree, due for harvest around July-August:


...and the volunteer nasturtiums that reseed themselves and come up in the front yard every year.


All the orange trees around here are blooming, and the air smells great for a change.
