Hello to all in the blogosphere and may your day be going splendidly or your night time as well. I’m currently getting my bones into gear to start attempting to tackle the protecting of my fruit futures from the dreaded fruit fly invasion. Oh how I hate and abhor those little tiny flies just doing what comes naturally.
See that little fruit fly on my rosemary bush? The flowers have only just come out on my ancient apricot and they’re already rubbing there legs with glee!
Here’s a close up of the nasty little aphids I discovered on my double grafted nectarine tree yesterday. As its only small at the present I was successful in spraying them with Pyrethrum till they were dead. They haven’t spread to the new growth on my other fruit trees yet but I’m going to keep my eyes peeled.
This is my newish Trevatt Apricot just coming into flower.
This is the gorgeous blossom of my Satsuma plum. The tree is thick with it this year. It was severely affected by aphids last year and has come back beautifully this year thankfully.
These blossoms belong to my Santa Rosa plum which sits next door to my Satsuma plum. It is also nicely covering the whole tree this year 🙂
These blossoms belong to my old Apricot which I always think is going to die any year now but keeps surprising me. This year I shall get fruit without maggots in it, I’m determined. Nylon bags are at the ready to go on!
These are my blueberries just starting to get into flower and fruit stage. Cannot wait for these little purple beauties to arrive in force.
Here is a little millipede climbing up our newly painted garage wall the other day. Amazing little critters and such an ancient little fossil creature still alive today 🙂
This is my lovely Princess Lavender. The bees adore it as do I. I need to purchase lots more of these little plants or maybe just take some cuttings from these and get them growing.
This is one of the Kookaburras (a member of the Kingfisher family) that live and hunt about our house. Very adept hunters.
Here it is eyeing Jason and the camera off.
I end this short springish blog off with a few photos of the delectable and always amusing Molly who is forever telling us what we should be doing for her.
I’m just waiting for a call to come through guys. Can you answer it for me?
Hmmm what shall I do now? I’m in the mood for some ripping about in the sunshine.
Well, this is fun! Now I’m up here what can I see, apart from my human taking my best angle in this photo?
The morning has been SO exhausting that I must immediately lie down right here on this nice warm newspaper you don’t need to be reading 😉
Have a lovely day/night wherever you may be fellow bloggers.
