do bees ever consider a

garden a work

in progress?

there are wildflowers, fruit tree, grapevine, passion fruit and kiwi vine blossoms to pollinate.


mature mission fig, peach, & plum trees are usually first. with an evolving crop of younger plantings bearing throughout the season: fuyu persimmon, perfume quince, blenheim apricot,  royal crimson cherry,  pomegranate & mulberry trees.


year-round workhorses: mature pinkerton avocado, mission & empeltre olive, meyer & eureka lemon, persian lime & golden nugget tangerine trees, solitary reminders of the groves that once lined downtown L.A. and filled city medians.
