Tweed River Pecans (available at the honey stand this week and next)1625514_663518810370904_1786292816_n-1

Spring time is very beautiful at Tweed River Pecans. Tiny flowers are appearing on the trees. Each of these miniscule buds will grow a new pecan nut over the next six months.

Other photos show the dainty soft green of the new foliage just emerging after winter’s dormancy. Looking closely you can also see the catkins covered in pollen which will pollinate the female flowers.

Lots of food stalls are offering refreshing cool drinks so try some of these – generally not sweet so very refreshing during these hot spells. IMG_4680pu3yA
