A few odds and ends

What about this for an egg, in Bobs hand. I am going to have this one for my tea. Its a Goose egg yum!

On our travels we spied this little flower , does anyone know what it is please.

This is the standard Fuchsia “Blands New Stripe” it obviously doesn’t mind the cold.

I’m not sure what this small tree is called but we went to Majorca some years ago and we had some very nice fruit, this was the pip or stone in it, we planted it and look whats come up, its around 4 years old now It had 3 stones in it all curled around each other .

Hi Sue, goose eggs are very strong from what I can remember we had 4 geese running around when I was growing up, there are brilliant guard dogs. I think we mainly used there eggs for cooking, enjoy ....

It's a Loquat tree, gets lovely sweet small yellow/orange fruit with big brown sees in it. If you google the name you can find all kinds of info. on it. The seeds grow rather easily, at least here in LA anyway. I have 2 growing, I found them coming up in the front border so I dug them up and put one in a pot and another out on the roadside grass area which is grown very well.

Thats a rather large egg Sue, I've never tasted goose eggs, I hope you enjoy it though, your fuschia is doing well, I noticed some buds on two of mine today, the ones that have been outside all the time, neither of them lost their leaves at all through the winter months but its not been what we call a proper winter so no surprise really..
Your homegrown tree is looking really strong and healthy be nice if it produces fruit for you.....

Orange Loquat fruit. Your fuchsia is a beauty flowering well too. Not sure if the little flower is either Dog violet or a perriwinkle that grows low along the ground and blue. Hope you enjoyed your egg.
