Fig flower buds


Fig flower buds

If we get more sun, it'll be a bumper crop. I hope they don't come all at once...

I love everything about fig trees, Terra...the fruit, the fact that the fruit is actually the flower, the leaves...
(...not to mention the statues, on which, they protect the hero's unmentionables, lol).

Then, there's the "strangulating" fig...and the "fiddle-leafed fig...
...truly fascinating :)))

The leaves are really beautiful, Feverfew. And, they don't mind brutal pruning...just as well, because they grow really fast!

Bit late, but love your fig pic, i do miss mine here in yorkshire. Btw i got some good jam out of mine, kept the family supplied on our trips over to the uk. Having a van comes in handy there, wine and jam can take a surprising amount of space in a car. We shared our figs with the golden oriels and the hornets though., had to be pretty quick of the mark and gloves on!
