A Year of Fruit, It Seems—-Thursday, May 16, 2019

We have apricots shadowing there on the branches of the apricot trees

Lots and lots of apricots.  My work now is to thin them, then to hope for more to drop in June (called the June drop) so the remaining apricots are big and lush.

There are so many I am not sure if I can get them thinned properly.  We have four trees, plus a slew of wild ones.  I will not do anything to the wild ones, the animals take care of those fruits.

In the Sour Cherry trees, we see masses of glittering little green globes

Which will ripen close to the 4th of July; cherry pie in the making! 🙂 Unless, of course, the Robins and other birds get them first. 🙂

We also have pears, apples, prunes, and wild plums all in need of thinning (and my hope that the June drop thins more)

This year is shaping up to be a brilliant fruit year!

I also am enjoying this new area of lawn…taking out that huge flower bed has reduced my weeding and watering time greatly!

I found a Heart!!!

Right there in there in the yard, just waiting for me!

O! The Joy!

I ran and got the camera, took a photo of the heart and the weeds just to show you!

Then I picked up the rock heart. Gave Thanks to the earth, the rock, and the Universe than brought it in to rest on my window ledge by the kitchen sink!

From my world to your heart,

  1. The fruit trees are celebrating! I think this is the first time since I started following you years ago that you’ve had a proper crop on the apricot trees. Every other time, there has been blossom, and then dirty weather to knock it all down again.


  2. How wonderful that you are seeing such a fruit year! Trees are barely in blossom here so far. It has been a surprise to me to find that we are always so far behind you in seasons. Hooray for your heart rock!


  3. Wow, your yard is so further along then ours… Yea on your bounty of fruit!!! One of the plum tree is blooming, but the other looks… sad. Not sure it made it thru the winter. The cherry tree hasn’t bloomed yet. Soon! Love your heart rock!


  4. wow…I never knew you had all those fruit trees. Lucky you…looks like they’re doing great this year. Please keep me in your prayers Linda. I just had cancer surgery and dont know if they got it all or not. Love your blog and pictures too.


  5. Your fruit trees look wonderful! And the jams and preserves will be delicious and remind you of summer in the winter months.


  6. Reminds me of my GM’s farm…three different grape vines, blackberry bushes, cherry tree, pear tree, peach tree, apple tree, pecan, black walnut… She grew watermelons. I miss her homemade wine!
