2014, 1 March: Peach Blossom

I have a dwarf Peach tree on our balcony.  I bought it last summer and it was fairly lush and green. But I wasn’t sure if it had blossomed and it looked a little sad by the end of the yar.  I gave it a good prune a few weeks ago, cutting back the branches that were dead (for some reason), allowing the healthy parts of the plant to flourish.  And I’m delighted that there have been not only green shoots, but also big fat blossom buds, which have started to burst into flower.  One of the reasons I bought a peach tree was for the blossom. I am not disappointed.
