Crab apples - Jelly to be made soon
Desert Rose Seed Pod
Desert Rose Trunk
Seed SavingSome snap shots around the garden and on the balcony.
It was a beautiful day so I picked a large bucket of crab apples. They are so pretty. The Jelly they create is a pretty pink/orange. Only down fall in crab apples is quite a few of them have little worms or holes. It's a tedious job of cutting and sorting but the jelly is well worth it.
The Desert Rose seed pod is rare. I have two plants grown from seed. One is over 7 years old and the one shooting out the pod is only 3 years old. I am very excited as it will produce 100's of seeds. Some might even have a different color than the mother plant.
Last, I have a sunflower field with all different colors. I saved a few heads that are now drying.
Again, it was one beautiful day and I wanted to share.
Thanks for visiting.
