The gardens at Paula’s are in full bloom, which means all the fruit trees are loaded down with fruit.
On the property we have kumquats, loquats, 14 varieties of bananas, olive trees, blueberries, peaches, pears, apples, lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges and plums. That’s a whole lot of fruit, y’all!
The bananas bloomed in January with giant purple blooms. The pear tree is in full bloom now and is stunning. The new peach tree is loaded with baby peaches. The loquats limbs are bending to the ground with so much fruit. The kumquats still have plenty of fruit left over from winter, and the citrus trees are loaded with blooms, which means we will have a bumper crop this year.
The smell in the citrus garden is intoxicating. The olive trees are just now showing olives, and the plum trees are producing too. I hope you enjoy my collection of pictures from the property I took this morning.
This banana tree is one of our favorites. It looks so stately as its branches spread and reach for the sky.
The kumquats add a nice pop of citrus color to Paula’s property – and they’re delicious too!
You won’t believe how amazing these lemon tree blooms smell as you walk by.
Is there anything more perfect than these olive trees overlooking the water in Paula’s backyard? We don’t think so!
The peach trees on Paula’s property are simply adorable, and they produce the sweetest fruit.
I can’t get over how stunning the blossoms of Paula’s pear tree look against the bright blue sky.
