Yesterday was a glorious winter day accompanied with warmer then usual temperatures; 68 degrees F. I went over to Double S Farms to help my brother-in-law (Farmer Dad), prune the fruit trees – (the fruit trees had sadly been neglected and mistreated by the previous owners, so we had to quite a bit of corrective pruning).
I brought along, my now repaired camera, intending to take pictures of how to prune fruit trees for a later post. Once I arrived, I was so happy to see early signs of spring all around me….
A single peach bud, just beginning to show a flash of pink.
Snap Peas beginning to grow in the vegetable garden.
The grapefruit tree is heavily laden with delicious fruit.
The “Formerly Overgrown, Neglected Rose – Glamis Castle” beginning to leaf out.
The apple trees were full of buds and I was able to find this glimpse the pink petals impatiently waiting to burst out.
Double S Farms resident Costa’s Hummingbird, was happily perched on top of the almond tree watching over our activities.
