Trees are amazing

After a severe pruning in December I cannot believe how the trees are growing back so vigorously.  From stumps to growth.  Trees are truly amazing.

Orange-tree-May2015The persimmon, pomegranate and quince are flowering (which I wasn’t expecting given they were pruned so harshly) and will bear fruit this year. A reminder that I have ants to fight.  The fruit tree grease experiment on the lemon tree seems to have done the job, so the whole garden will soon have a stripey green decor.
