It is just beautiful here today so I headed out to the backyard with my trusty camera in hand and discovered a few tiny surprises that made me more excited than a lotto winner...seriously...
As many of you know, we planted fruit trees before we unpacked boxes when we arrived here on the OAH. Knowing that it would be several years before seeing fruit, I've watered and weeded, and given many pep talks to these trees...after all, growing FRUIT is an investment in time. It's a wholly different undertaking when compared to an annual veggie garden...serious stuff, people.
Anyway, back to the walk I took today...check out what's been happening out back!!
The blueberries will be blooming any day now! Yes, I know this is a bush...not a tree, but these take some time, too!
That's a tiny pear!! No kidding!
Apple blossoms...the first blooms on our apple trees since we planted them!
A teeny peach was hiding inside this blossom!
I'd like to pause for a moment to thank all those who have made these garden developments possible...thank you precious little buggies! Ummmm...could you get off that dandelion, though, and head over to the fruit trees? (Look at all the pollen on his little bum! :)
Our apricot tree is our healthiest tree...it really seems happy with it's location and all this crazy Oklahoma weather. Grow little tree, grow! Can you see that lovely little baby apricot?
Could this be the year we finally get a decent fruit harvest? Maybe! Stay tuned to find out!!
(Also, I'd like to apologize for being a bad blogger...I know it's been awhile since I've posted. Thanks for your patience and for sticking with me!)
