Spring Blossoms 2017

Spring has arrived!  And that means blossoms are popping out left and right.

The Asian Pear is again blooming and coming out strong.

The cherry tree has a few more blossoms, but I doubt I’ll see even a handful of cherries.  Especially if the birds get to them first.


The Mexicola avocado has always been prolific with blossoms.  Even so, the flowers end up dropping by middle of summer.  But since I noticed more bees buzzing around maybe we’ll have more fruit setting rather than dropping.  Maybe we’ll have a good crop of avocado this year.

Even with all the rain we had this winter, the sate of California still encourages us to save water.  Since our mini backyard fruit orchard is on year 3, I would think  most of the roots have grown deep and strong.  So hopefully it will do well with limited water.

  1. More blossoms mean more fruits to harvest. I’m looking to plant some fruit trees in the garden also, one side is still empty and that way I won’t have to plant so much.

    • Yes, I do hope we get more fruits. The Asian Pear has to be the most productive tree. And the others are slow going… OH, I’ll have to stop by your blog & see how the garden is coming along 🙂
