Spring has Sprung!

Spring has arrived in our backyard! The temps are in the high 60s, and everything is starting to bloom!

The plum tres started to blossom right before we left on our trip. When we came back, they were in full bloom, with many leaves already coming in. Even though I had the trees pruned back in December, it seems as if we may be seeing the early stages of Plumpacalypse 2013. :-/

The lemon and lime trees are thriving more than ever before. Our lime tree has never produced fruit, and we have three limes hanging on and growing. The lemon tree (which we've had for over 12 years!) has finally found a happy spot, and is rewarding us with a couple dozen lemons.

dozens of lemons ripening!

We have a couple calla lilies that are larger than my hand.

HUGE Calla Lilly!
