Most notably is the Florida Prince peach tree. I love the pink and white blooms on this tree, but I'm heartbroken because we have some freezing temperatures in the forecast this next week, and I'm doubtful that my blossoms will survive, which means no peaches for me.
That's the trouble with selecting a peach tree that was not right for my location. I recently learned at a home fruit seminar, held by the local master gardeners, that we require fruit tree varieties that need around 700 chill hours. The Florida Prince only needs 150, which is why it blooms so early and is exposed to the danger of freezing its blooms. Looks like I'll be taking this peach down and replanting a new one this year. In the meantime, I'll enjoy its blooms while I can.
The veggie garden is also putting on a show of flowers. Many of the fall and winter veggies have bolted and the bees are loving the blooms, especially on the broccoli.
This is the first time I've seen the arugula flowers - so dainty.
The peas are starting to shoot out blooms - I'm looking forward to some nice pea pods for stir-fry recipes in a few weeks.
The rosemary is a-bloomin' with its delicate violet flowers, which is buzzing with bees.
Finally, with the decent amount of rain and warm temps, the yard has sprouted up with blooming weeds that I appreciated for a moment before my hubby mowed them down.
Thanks to Carol for hosting Garden Blogger's Bloom Day on the 15th of every month. Be sure to stop by May Dreams Gardens to see what is blooming in other gardens around the world.
