The Fruit of Our Labor

where-poppies-blow-20

Well howdy there, folks! A couple weeks ago I took a little farm tour to see how things were growing, and boy, were they! Now they’re even bigger. O.o But since it was a cloudy day, I took my camera along and took pictures. Whilst I was searching for peaches, I found that the cherry trees that we planted four years ago are FINALLY producing, which was the cause of many exclamations on my end. We don’t have very many cherries this year and the birds have been eating most of them, but this is just the start.

Anyhoo, here’s what’s growing right now in the flower and fruit department.

Snap-dragons!

They’re so glossy you can see my reflection in them. XD

And lastly, my absolute favorite: a poppy popped out and I nearly died. I LOVE POPPIES! Which is why I’m thinking of naming my blog Where Poppies Blow (or Aria Lisette – which do you prefer?) Anyway I picked it and took pictures of it at home and then pressed it because it was wilting. Poppies don’t do so great after they’re picked, unfortunately.

    How fun that you’re finally getting cherries and pears! I love our cherry tree, but unfortunately we’ve had some bird problems too. The macro photos of the poppy are gorgeous, how did you get them?

    Lovely pictures, Aria! Everything is so green and lush. Where I am, the peas are just starting to come up, as May is our planting season :)

    A tip for poppies: after picking them, dip the bottom inch of the stem in boiling water. This sears the stem, preventing the flower’s juices from escaping and helps them last a little longer. I do this all the time with our poppies and it seems to really work.
