Pistachio Blooms with Fruit 3/31/20


I’m so excited. This is the first time I’ve seen my pistachio loaded with nuts. I’m sure the birds will get them all before they completely ripen, but at least I got this shot!!


And here is the same tree three weeks ago, when there were profuse blooms but no nuts that I could see.

Persistent Sprout: Sunday Trees, July 29, 2018


When I had the tree-trimmers trim back my hugely overgrown pistachio tree, they cut off a huge branch and tarred it over completely to inhibit further growth.  This little sprout stubbornly flouted convention and somehow managed to push through the tar.  I have to applaud its persistence and determination!
