First white rose & Easter bouquets
Back in February when I got my new camera, I tried a bunch of macro shots, including the hardenbergia/vine lilac with my copper rain chain...such cute tiny blossoms!
Last year I planted a couple blueberry plants, but right before there was an unexpected April heat wave that killed them. Only one has come back, so I planted some more, with two of them by the front door. Blueberries are forest floor habitat, so since my fern likes it there SOOO much, I hope the blueberries like it too.

All my tomato plants are already blooming & at least twice as tall as when I planted them in March, but it's not warm enough overnight for any fruit to set yet.

My friendly squirrel has already been chowing down & hurling the seeds into my yard, so I need to start harvesting loquats & making some jam. Perhaps a loquat rum infusion too this year? That could be quite tasty...
While I was gone the quince tree went from a bevy of beautiful blossoms to a bunch of baby fruit! Sure hope they all grow up for harvest time this fall!
My grapevines were just barely budding before I left, and now there are grape berries all over the arbor! The concord grape is coming back too, but not growing as fast yet.

Brittahytta before I left, and when I got back...look at those roses!
Stay tuned, since after this weekend should be the final patio reveal with fully-functional wetbar, ready for the Cinema Brittahytta season premiere this coming week!
