In the back of my garden in a far, far corner I planted this peach tree. It is a special variety for planting in areas that receive little winter chill. Every year it is the first of my fruit trees to bloom and even if it didn't produce fruit I would love it for it's visual impact alone.
Delicate, candy pink blooms cover the entire tree...
when they slowly fall off the green leaves will appear...
followed by the beginings of the fruit.
I love looking at the blue sky through the flowering branches ~ so beautiful
Underneath this dog stands duty, unfortunately he doesn't frighten away the squirrels possums or birds which find the peaches as equally tasty as I do!
The pot in the back contains a Clematis vine which clamours up the birdhouse post and produces the prettiest purple flowers, but that all comes much later for now the tree supplies all of the glory.
Are there any signs in your garden of Spring approaching?
