It's been a while since I've done any type of post on the backyard, which is probably because at this point it's so overgrown it's a little embarrassing. I still do love our backyard though, just wish I had more energy to maintain it a little better. But for the first time in 2012, here's a look at some of the blooms currently in our backyard. (Doing my best to avoid the overgrown parts, of course.)
Unfortunately, you can see some of the overgrown-ness here.
When I first saw this first I was pretty sure it was some diseased looking lemon. But once I looked closer I realized it was on the tree right next to the lemon tree. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's a pear. It is the only one (at least that I've found) on the tree. So hopefully it survives long enough to ripen and I get to eat it before any animals get to it. And can I say that I love the fact that we're enter our third year in this house and still discovering more trees. (Especially since I'm pretty sure I killed the peach tree.)
Have you made any surprising discoveries in your backyard? And how good are you at maintaining your yard?
