So, I'm not showing these because they're impressive- I show them because I'm excited they are there at all. The first pic is our one of our Mock Oranges . It's eight feet tall after I cut it back. It took 7 YEARS for this shrub to flower, and only two branches did But dammit, there's a flower!
The second is my Belle of Woking clem. on the barn. I thought she died last year as a first year...but she came back! and one of her buds opened and passed! Small victories!
I had mock orange when I lived in Massachusetts. didn't even bloom until the last year we were there!
I found a single soursop this year. I will spare you images (died on the vine, it looks pretty gross) I didn't find until I cut the tree back some. (its either I do it or the line guys do it and hack it to death) was sad to see that but, at least I got fruit...
