The garden keeps holding me captive! The hydrangeas are getting more color and the jasmine smells heavenly!
The tomato plants are getting their first green fruit!
The blueberries are growing, but the bushes are still so small. Last year we got enough blueberries to enjoy over granola. This year it'll not be much more.
The fig tree on the other hand, has an overwhelming number of figs getting nice and big. I am collecting recipes of what to do with them all (aside from just eating a good number of them). Any suggestions?
This oleander was a gift four years ago from my aunt. It was a small shrub, probably knee-high.
It is now at least 10 feet (3 meters) high and simply gorgeous! That is the climate here in Georgia - everything that likes heat grows in leaps and bounds. Our fig tree was a tiny little stick we planted six years ago - it is now a good-sized tree!
The same with our pomegranate bush (I'll have to get some pictures of it), which has grown from a little stick four years ago to a HUGE bush with a trunk like a tree. When it is blooming or has fruit, people regularly ring our doorbell to ask what it is. It looks striking!
And last a little fun I had with the birds - ok, it was just entertaining for me - feeding them worms...
from this plate!
Wishing you much fun and sunshine and beauty on this Saturday in May!!
