Apple Blossoms, Trinity County, CA.

I love apple blossoms, especially the ones with pink.

Apple blossoms soon to be apples. Once again in the cycle spring to fall.

These are the most beautiful and tasty cherries ever!  I sure loved them when we had them to pick every year.  That is when the birds did not get to them first.  One year, they were there, and the next day they were gone!  Apparently, it was the same all around for many cherry crops.

Cherries grow so easily in northern California.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cherries only get better each year!  I don’t live there at the moment, but I am sure the cherries were just as delicious if not better than the years before.  I did make some cherry jam once, and it was delicious!  I gave some to my relatives, and kept some for myself also.

Pomegranate, A Delicious and Nutritious Fruit

Pictures are cleaned pomegranate seeds in a stainless steel collainder over a white bowl.
Pomegranates grow well in California.

 

A pomegranate fruit was one of my favorites as a child and still is. It is so delicious, worth the effort it takes to peel.I f you put one in a bowl or sink of water, it is less messy and also easier to peel. You can thank my aunt for that piece of advice. She uses them in a particular salad that she serves. Recently I read something about the pomegranate seeds being very good for you.  They have large quantities of antioxidants also.

Pomegranates taste great!

 

 

 

I found this site which I found to be very well made.   If you have never had a pomegranate, this would be a very helpful site.

I love pomegranates, they are so delicious.  I remember eating them when I was a child, and eating the seeds sometimes but not all the time.
Recently, I read the seeds are really good for you.  Pomegranates in general are very good for you.  Wonderful as an addition in salads.

My friend has a pomegranate tree in Chico, California.  The blossoms were just turning to fruit in early July.  The pomegranates are probably about ready now, and I should call my friend and see if they are ripe yet.

 

Pomegranate just starting and blossom dying off.

Beautiful pomegranates! This one is still very green, and the beginning of the fruit looks like a flower at the bottom, you can see the flower bloom dark pink wilted away.
