Fruit Update and Wildflowers

Do you remember me showing you the itty-bitty plums on our plum tree a couple of weeks ago? Well here is a picture of those same plums . . . they’ve grown from about the size of a dime to about the diameter of a nickle now. :) Yes, I know it isn’t very much but they are much easier to spot now. :)Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Here are some pictures of our Arkansas Black apples. They are now about the diameter of a quarter now. :)Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meHere’s a few more but not quite as big.Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meLast time I didn’t tell you about the blueberry bushes we planted at the same time as the fruit trees. There are eight plants, two each of four kinds. They are supposed fruit in succession throughout the fruiting season spring through fall. They are supposed to end up being about six feet tall and about three feet around. Nice!

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis is a really cool picture to show kids how the fruit grows because it has some of the blossoms right beside some that have lost the blossom and the fruit is developing. So cool! I had never seen this before either. :)

We have quite a few wildflowers going on the property. Well, we did until Mike mowed. Now we won’t see them for a long while. ;)

Here are some close-ups I took a couple weeks ago. They are tiny!

Then we have wild onions.  And sometimes we have wild garlic too, which looks very similar to the onion so it’s hard for me to tell the difference just looking at them.

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meA couple of years ago we had this odd vine growing in our garden. I could not remember what it was. Turns out, it was on of the grape bushes we bought from Aldi and planted over 5 years ago. I thought it had died like the other fruit bushes we’d bought from there (because we did not care for them properly).

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meUnfortunately the grapes are very small and have seeds in them. Hmmm, I guess they’ll be good chicken fodder next time we get chickens. ;)

On the up side, my newest rose bush, which we planted last year, is doing good. It has a few buds on it already.

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meA couple of years ago my family planted some flowers and some trees for me for my birthday and Mother’s Day. Unfortunately only one survived.

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meThe one in the forefront is doing good but the one, the same size, in  the background is a goner. See . . .

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meMy Irises are doing better this year. I had about eight blooms. Last year I did not see a single one. I don’t understand how I can have soooo many plants and so few Irises.

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.me And finally, there is this mystery plant that grows very tall and nobody can tell me what it is.

Fruit Update and Wildflowers ~ Lifeofjoy.meIt has only ever grown where there is animal waste. So here I have called it the poop plant, I’m sorry to say. That aside, Tiffany got some nice shots of raindrops in that picture. She took a lot but I’ve already gone on long enough, so I won’t share anymore here today.

Have a great weekend!

Until next time, God bless,
