Fruit in my Garden

Now here are some photos of what I have growing to eat in my garden - fruit and nuts. We have a huge garden with lots of fruit trees - many nearly ready for pruning but some fruiting now - mainly the citrus - lemons, limes, mandarins and oranges, and of course the walnut tree which is next door and drops it nuts over our fence - how nice.

Lemon -Meyer - a small tree at the moment but loaded with lemons

Oranges - second year - smallish tree at the moment

Pomegranate - how lovely to draw - haven't quite got the cooking of them yet

Lime - new flowers - more limes to come?

Walnuts - and more to collect today

Our Street

Our street (or rather) has been for many months undergoing surgery - a new street but at the moment it is mud and more mud but when it is finished I think it will be the race track again as it was before. 
We may be able to get our caravan out for a trip - ha! When who knows????
But we will have a new street sometime???
I wonder???
But we do have new kerbs and driveways but not the road.

In my Garden

A few problems in the garden - the storm blew over a section of one of our palm trees and the other palm is "seeding". 
I love my garden at this time of the year. It is cool or rather cold, wet and lush.

The 'seeding' of the palm - I just love the shapes

I really love the details on the palms - need to be some textiles with all my garden photos
