Hi there my friends! It's been quite a while since my last post...
So let's celebrate this year fist the first blooms and a nice harvest of Buddha Hand or Fingered citron,(Citrus medica var. sarcodactylis) .
The poor plant suffered a massive cochineal attack ( grrrr x!x%#/¿!) last year, so it is a wonder that it has still managed to produce four big fruit ( the other two are still hanging on the plant).
The beloved Yuletide Camelia behaved well and bloomed generously, considered that Barcelona has not the perfect camelia weather... Summers are too hot and they struggle, but this is what they get so I'm happy with them anyway.
I just love Yuletide, that bright and clear shade of red! Blooms not too heavy.
Talking about harvesting, a nice bowl of wild oregano and serpolet thyme (the one that flavours all southern French stews) to store for cooking.
