Today, a friend was walking out to her car, and spotted the tree and immediately went over and plucked a couple off and popped them in her mouth! She said they were so yummy! I asked her what they were, and she said she wasn't sure, but thought they might be a Loquat. So, I tried one, and was pleasantly surprised! Looked them up online, and sure enough, it's a Loquat Tree!
For years, the fruit on this tree has just rotted and fallen on the ground! Now, I think we just might have to start harvesting it. I know my neighbors never pick it, so I don't think they would care much. Can't believe it took so long to find out what it was!

What's going on? Everything seems out of whack lately. Some things are blooming when they shouldn't and some things aren't blooming at all! GRRR - gardening just isn't for me!
My brother and his fiance will be here in a little over a week, and I was hoping that the Jasmine would still be in bloom (it smells just heavenly when you walk up the steps) - but I guess that would be too much to ask!
In painting news : I haven't been doing much of that lately -- kind been in a slump. Then, I found Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson, and ordered her DVD, and now I've come a little bit alive! Can't wait to try her technique for "Paper Painting"! She lives in the Orlando area, so maybe I'll get lucky and be able to attend one of her workshops. More on that later!
