If you stand just outside my back door at the moment, you can hear the drone of hundreds of bees, as they pollinate the blossoms on the mandarin tree, making us a new crop for next winter.
Come June/July and the fruit drop all over the yard, but for the moment, it's blossom that is falling like snowflakes all over the garden, path, and washing on the line. There's also still a few fruit from the season just past clinging to the tree.


  1. You're lucky forwarding to summer time, here's in quebec we're loohing for winter soon. Have a nice season...

  2. Love trees. The bottle tree. Always loved those trees.They use to have some in the Rockhampton botanical gardens when i was a kid.
