I was a bit under the weather this week and I didn't make it out for flowers. But it has been a pleasure to watch my poor neglected balcony garden perk up. Between the move (the new balcony has much more sun) and the rain (I am not exactly a reliable source of water), they've been happy.
And we're officially on Mandarin-quat Watch 2010! I can't wait for these guys to be ready to eat.
I've been counting every piece of fruit and tiny bud and sometimes I just sit outside and stare at the little tree, willing it grow. It's a cross between a mandarin and a kumquat.
There's something special about a tree. I love my parsley, but it just isn't as exciting.
