Blenheim Apricots


Hopefully, in a few weeks we'll be eating these Blenheim apricots from the backyard.

It being Friday, I'm participating in The Weekend in Black and White, which is hosted by Dragonstar. To see other participants, please click here.

    1. Thanks, Dragonstar. I think Bleheims are the sweetest of all apricots that I've tasted thus far.

    1. Thanks, Birgit. It's shady back there now so I think our crop will take longer to ripen then normal.

    1. It comes from parents who believe in planting fruit trees in their backyards. :-)

  6. Susie,

    You have no netting over your beautiful apricots. Will you have to fight off any greedy birds as the fruit ripens? We have to net all our fruit because otherwise the cockatoos will swoop down in their hundreds and devour everything in sight!

    1. Fortunately, most of the fruit is low so we can harvest them before the birds. We're okay about letting the birds having the fruit way at the top.

    1. Thanks, LonettA. My eyes aren't so great anymore so I'm rather insecure about whether I've put in too much or too little contrast.

    1. They're still green. We haven't been getting much sunshine plus it's shady in the backyard so it may take longer for them to get ripe. But, when they do, oh boy! Intense sweetness.

  10. Nothing like tree ripened fresh fruit. But take care not to eat too much at one time. Lovely photo.
