Fruit in my garden

Our garden isn't large but it does have some lovely trees and plants in it. I think at some point a very keen gardener lived here and spent alot of time in it. I went a wandering with my camera and small boy and took some pictures of various fruits and flowers. Wait until you see the size of our blackberries when they come out! I've never seen such large ones!

Apples and Plums


Raspberries and Pears


Our hydrangea is exceptionally beautiful this year. It is usually all pink but this year has blue and purple flowers too.




Small boy is fascinated by all of the fruit on the trees. Our little plum tree has excelled itself this year. Two years ago it look completely dead, we trimmed it and it produced two plums. Last year it grew five. This year it has about fifty. It is only small and it is all plums. Lovely, juicy red ones. Can't wait. Our pear tree always produces hundreds of pears, we usually offer them to friends and neighbours as there are so many. The apples are lovely but get alot of bugs

Oh, your garden is glorious! I am especially envious of the beautiful hydrangeas. I have tried various spots in my yard (full shade, part shade, no shade), but nothing seems to work.

I love your jewelry and craft work too. You are one creative lady!

Oh, what a lovely garden! We have just a tiny yard, and we manage to square foot garden what we can, but no way could we fit in such wonderful fruit trees!

We did manage to get in a blueberry bush, but the squirrels got to the fruit before we did! Live and learn, lol! Next year we will put a cage around it!
