Against the Odds

Today’s prompt…

I’m still getting used to the different (both positive and negative) conditions here. The frosts stay longer (Brrr…we have one this morning), it’s hotter and drier in summer and the soil is very different(not very fertile). But this little Nectarine tree is blooming with some help from manure, compost, worm tea and a regular pep talk from yours truly 🙂  It’s one I grew it from a stone/seed just before I left Traralgon and, hopefully, it will provide us with lots of fruit in the years to come.

  1. good luck with it – it is so pretty and delicate

  2. What a gorgeous tree, Lancer…and it grows because you planted the pit and have given it loving care? That is so fantastic…and brilliant!

    I have never seen a nectarine tree…can you tell?
