april blossom week

The yard isn't in full bloom yet (the oleanders and red bird of paradise took quite a beating with the handful of freezes we had), but there is still quite a bit of Spring color already. Wanna see? I'll be posting a few snaps every day this week.

First up are the edibles. My Purple Cherokee tomato plant. This is going to be a funky-looking tomato.

The orange tree has been blooming for a few weeks. It smells heavenly!

And tiny oranges are starting to grow. They'll be ready next January. Until then, we still have some second-rate oranges (we already got all the best low-hanging fruit) and good grapefruit to pick (they survive on the tree longer than oranges.)
