The fruit trees someone planted in an empty lot around the corner from my place are in full bloom, covered in pinkish puffs. It’s raining as I type this so chances are all of those beautiful blooms are falling to the ground.
The fully blooming trees caught me by surprise as I walked by them on my way home from the community garden. I grew up in fruit tree country and am pretty sure those blooms aren’t typically out until May! I should go check on the crab apples and cherry trees in High Park or risk missing their yearly splash-out.
I took this picture yesterday afternoon while walking home from the market carrying another box of pansies, several cameras, books, gym clothes (I didn’t go) and two bags of produce. I never seem to be able to go anywhere unencumbered.
I considered garbage-picking a massive, square sink but had to walk away from it, begrudgingly accepting my limitations. It would have made an awesome planter!
I’ve had to start putting annoying and ugly watermarks on all of my images because they are showing up as illustrations on too many blogs and gardening catalogues. There’s this crazy legal thing called copyright and intellectual property that half of The Internet just doesn’t seem to get.
I took this photo on a short walk yesterday afternoon. There’s a lot to stop for these days. The weather has been unseasonably warm. The plants are growing faster than I can keep up with. I went back to the location of the scilla and violets with some film cameras and there was nothing left to photograph — they were done blooming in a matter of days!
Can anyone confirm whether or not these are Tulipa sylvestris? There’s a few things about them that seem a bit off so I’ve never been absolutely certain. The plants are about 7 inches tall maximum.
I’m in love with the tomato seedlings. I just transplanted the first batch from the seed-starter into their own little pots. This one has grown quite a bit but still has its seed leaves.
They smell good.
