Growing local

It's been years since this tree produced anything other than a few fruit and it's covered in them this spring.
Been a funny old spring for flowering trees, they're everywhere throughout Brisbane flowering their heads off. Must have suited the Lychee too.

That would fit with all the El Nino talk Elaine.

Interesting to see if it's a dry summer. Plants are reputed to be able to foretell weather and race to reproduce when the it's going to be dry. Time will tell.

It's definitely something to do with the particular weather we are having. The flowering trees, bougainvillea around the place have been flowering like no ones business also.

Could it be the amount of rain we have had??

I was threatening, within it's hearing, to take a chainsaw to it. Amazing how that works.

Awesome, Lissa. Wasn't it you who was threatening to do away with the lychee? Maybe it heard you.
