espalier fig tree

I love watching the new green leaves form on our two espalier fig trees. We have two fig trees in pots; Ficus 'Black Mission' and Ficus 'Brown Turkey'. More photos of the differences of these two fig varieties and taste tests to come.

fragrant Mandarin orange blossoms

Did you know that orange blossoms are very fragrant? I had no idea until our front yard Mandarin Orange tree went into a crazy bloom this Spring. I walked by the nicely shaped orange tree to be hit with a huge sniff of what smells like honeysuckle. It's really wonderful.

Spanish Lavender

I love Lavender. One of my favorites is Spanish Lavender. Each blooming spike has an extended double petal at the end that looks like a purple butterfly. God's creation really is amazing!

baby peaches

I'm guessing at this point that the fruit tree I showed you before is a peach tree just based off of the fruit appearance. I could be wrong though.. These still could be apricots!

Wisteria 'Cooke's Purple'

Wisteria 'Cooke's Purple' has a great purple color flower with a light white base. It has a much longer blooming season than most Wisteria which is a huge plus.

Buxus sempervirens 'Egg'

Large green masses and simple green forms like these unique, Buxus sempervirens 'Egg's in landscape beds help anchor all the plants together and give instant maturity to a landscape design.
