Today's Flowers #133

Welcome to Today's Flowers hosted by Santilli, Denise, Pupo and Sandy Carlson.
Today I am going to show the flowers of some of the fruit trees in my garden. The banana above has just come up with a huge flower, promising a big bunch later in the year.
The mango tree is flowering its heart out, although it is late this year. We can expect a bumper crop of mangoes this year. I hope they will all not be stolen by the time I come back from my summer holiday.!
The flowers of coffee plant were not pollinated last month when it put out its exquiaite flowers. It has come up with a new flush of aweet scented flowers. I hope the pollinators do their job now!


Have you tasted coffee flower honey? It is wonderful.



The Avacado tree has flowered for the first time this year. Avacado fruits are safe from predators like squirrels, monkeys and little boys from the village, because they are slightly poisonous before they are ready to be eaten.

  1. I am quite envious to see your coffee flowers. We were given a plant and our temperatures would have been right but we are in a very dry climate and our soil is slightly saline and we lost it.

    Amaryllis do not need really cold winters as that is their leaf growth period. The bulbs are ideal for a really dry summer spot. They like the heat but not too much moisture in the summer. I wish I could send you a heap of bulbs but customs would not let them through.

  2. Thanks for the information, Arija. I hope some of the nurseries here will get those amaryllis bulbs . I have the common white and red varieties now flowering in my garden.

  5. For us this is the season for mango blooms...the only one in fact. I've never tasted coffee flower honey but only orange flower honey. Cherrapunjee is famous for orange honey. I've never seen an avocado plant before...thanks for including the photo!

  11. Oh, man, you must be in heaven with bananas, mangoes, avocados and coffee (all foods that I love) growing on your property! I do hope the mangoes will not all be stolen. I didn't know about coffee flower honey---I suppose it's because coffee plants don't grow in California.

  12. What wonderful fruiting plants you have in your garden! I have never before heard of coffee flower honey, but the idea of it makes my mouth water! I am very fond of avocados, but did not know that they are slightly poisonous before ripening. Good information to have.
