A walk in the garden...

The lemon tree is looking fantastic. This is the first year we actually had a lot of lemons on this tree.
The first plum tree has started to flower. The structure for the netting is looking a bit wonky. Will have to try and straighten that out soon.
The Native Wisteria is flowering madly.
Isn't it a lovely flower?
The Nashi pear has tons of fat buds. Hopefully we'll get to eat a few pears this season.
The apricot tree has just started to flower. We won't have much fruit, though, as we missed the opportunity to prune it back.
The red currants are looking great, too. Another good harvest again, maybe?
The variegated elder tree has tons of flower buds. Can't wait to see it laden with flowers.
We are still harvesting some of the winter vegetables. Here is a purple cauliflower.

I have lemon tree envy! You'd think in Tuscany we would be growing lemons by the ton. We have one little tree in a pot that taunts us each year by being covered in buds and then gradually dropping the lot.
I remember fondly the year you brought us red currants to Sydney and I made my first red currant jelly. I think of you each year when I make it.

Robyn, I am gobsmacked! No lemon glut in Tuscany! I'd have a word with the gardener! Teehee...
Yes, wasn't that a lovely time in Sydney?! I remember these days very fondly. :)

That wisteria is beautiful. Fingers crossed that our apricot will at least flower next year.

Sue, I sure hope so, too! I know the feeling. :)
