Pink Ladies

What spring is all about. Trees coming into fruit, flowers into bloom, and gardeners into work (hence the wheelbarrow).

Would love to be able to grow apples. At least we can grow mangoes, lychees, bananas and citrus. Sometimes I would gladly swap and seeing this photo gives rise to one of those times.

Cameilotei, Yes we do. The fruit bats and parrots love them. If we are very quick, we even get some.

If you look at my bucket of the pics of the glass house you will see the neighbours green plum tree, green on the outside yellow in the middle, which hangs over my fence, gives a lot of shade, stink when the fruit falls, BUT last year had soooooooooo many rainbow lorrikeets out the bac, noisy little blighters but nice :P :P
