Peach Trees

Thursday, March 30, 2006
There are two peach trees at our community garden. They are in the public area of the park, so anybody can come and harvest the peaches.

I noticed two things while I was taking these photos.
Some of the blossoms have a deep pink or fuchsia center, like this one (below).

While others are light pink throughout, like this one.

These blossoms are on the same tree, so I wondered:
Is one a male blossom and the other a female?

I also noticed that the buds have fuzz --

foreshadowing the peaches that will follow this summer.

Fresh peaches. I can't wait!
