So far it has the only flowers around – it’s still early in the season for Spring flowers – but it’s flowering more enthusiastically than I’ve ever seen it. Nights have been very mild with no hard freezes and none forecast for the next week.
Such a pretty day yesterday, with hardly any wind, and I got a lot of clean-up work done in the yard. Among which, I pulled away the fencing so I could remove the dead rosemary and all the blown-in tumbleweeds, mulch it with well-composted chicken shit and rotted straw, then slowly pour four big buckets of water over the lot. Then rearranged the fence before any cattle noticed.
It’ll never bear fruit, but it’s the most successful* of all the fruit trees we tried several years ago and I like it.
* Loosely defining ‘successful’ as still alive.
