Flowers Bloom & Hope Grows

This post is my opportunity to do three things that I am passionate about; tend my garden, do my art and inspire others to do the same.

The Pomelo is the subject of my first effort to share my Tucson, Arizona garden with you. Many people think our vegetation is sagebrush and desert cacti. But we really have a wonderful climate for growing flowers vegetable and fruit.

What is a pomelo?

A large, non-hybrid, citrus fruit with a taste similar to a large grapefruit. Learn more about pomelos here. Thank you Wikipedia. Have you donated to keep this free encyclopedia online?

Pomelo Blossoms

Large Blossoms

These pomelo blooms are so large they magnify the fragrance in relation to their size. It is TRUE citrus heaven for me and our other friends.

Large Fruit

Here is a ½ gallon of almond milk next to a pomelo fruit to give you an indication of how large it is.

Sweet Nectar

These are the other friends that benefit from the sweetness of the pomelo nectar.
