Sometimes, it’s the small things in life that make my heart glow. When I say small, I mean measuring about one eight of an inch (3-4mm), like the tiny cotyledons, the first leaves, of a germinating seed poking bravely up through the soil.
This is a sugar snap pea and my finger – my finger is the pink one!
This is a different type of cherry grafted to the new cherry sapling.
This is a peach scion on the almond tree – (I think! Lesson learned here – write it down when you do the graft!)
This is also one of those mystery ones! I’m nearly certain it is plum, grafted on to nectarine.
Cait captured the nectarine’s amazing pink blossoms!
Bulbs, rhizomes and tubers also amaze me. Bulbs look so dead when they are dormant, but grow into such beautiful flowers. Daffodils were my Dad’s favorite flower.
