Show and Telling My Blossoms

I know, its Tuesday, but the Show and Tell IS open until Tuesday night says Lolli. So be sure to head over and check out the rest of kids...
Anyway, today I want to share with you my budding, frutiful blossoms...
We planted these last summer I think it was, they are still babies, but wow, these babies are blossoming.
Here is the peach...see the cute little fuzzies?
And here are a few blossoms that are close to bearing peaches...

This one is our apple, no fruit yet, but close I'd guess.

Orange tree below, you can really see tiny little oranges, its so cool!

Here's the lemon, not a great picture but look close you can see them coming out...

And this one is our poor banana tree. When we planted it it had two leaves, one dried up and died, the remaining one was broke by a workman carrying a HUGE ladder and he clipped it right off with the ladder, didn't even tell us, we found after he left! This is the new leaf. This baby will take years to banana-ize I bet, we'll see.


  1. Sorry was testing something above, didnt think it would get posted....opps.

  2. Blah blah to you too.

    Great work! Nice to have a green thumb in a conducive climate.

    You know, when you say you're showing your blossoms, some people might get the wrong idea.

  3. Wow! I have always wanted fruit trees. Growing up, it was so cool to be able to pick pears, peaches, blackberries, etc.

    Good luck with your banana tree - it'll get there!!

  4. Blah blah my friend! Your blossoms are fantastic, but you know I read it first as "bosoms" and was wondering what was going on in your chestal region that you needed to tell us about.
    It must be fantastic to have all that in your backyard.

  5. Nice blossoms! You're gonna have some good fruits there with the right tending.

    (Double entendres? Perhaps.)

    You are making me nostalgic. I loved living more in harmony with the seasons when we were out that way.

  6. Beautiful! I can't wait to see them again when they are full of fruit!

  7. I love the blooming time. When everything is coming out of it's winter sleep. We have a few months before things really get going.

    Thanks for sharing. I bet those peaches will awesome.
