AVOCADO: BLOOM AND FRUITS

Merisi, my friend from the blog Merisi's Vienna For Beginners, left a comment when she saw at a glance my avocado tree on my Amarillys's post: "I have never seen an avocado tree blooming. Would you be so kind and give us a few images?" I think that my friend Claude, from the blog Du-four-au-jardin-et-mes-dix-doigts, will like these photos too, because she commented that "I had never seen an avocado in full bloom before."

So, here are the photos from my backyard.

Merisi, minha amiga do blog Merisi's Vienna For Beginners, deixou este comentário quando viu de relance meu abacateiro: "Eu nunca vi um abacateiro em flor. Você poderia fazer a gentileza de nos mostrar algumas imagens? Eu acho que minha amiga Claude, do blog Du-four-au-jardin-et-mes-dix-doigts também vai gostar destas fotos, pois ela também comentou que nunca havia visto um abacateiro florido.



Avocado tree in bloom




These photos of the fruits (very small yet) were taken by myself yesterday, at my backyard.

Sonia, certamente eu já vi um abacateiro em flor quando pequena, lembro que na casa de meus avós havia um enorme, que nos dava muitas frutas...mas não me lembrava mais das flores. Legal vê-las aqui!
Beijos e uma boa semana para você.

Thanks! I believe that I never saw an avocado tree (but I like avocados!), although they obviously exisit in some countries I have visited!

I hate to admit that I have envy, Sonia...BUT, having such a GREAT AND BEAUTIFUL Tree right there in your Garden that actually bears fruit....Oh Yum Yum Yum! I love Avacado's and I think I may have mentioned that the only time there was an Avacado tree in my yard was when I lived in a rented house on The Big Island--HAWAII, for 14 weeks, and we ate Avacado's at least twice a day.....The fruits were HUGE! And the most delicious Avacados I have ever tasted in my life. I bet the ones there on your tree must be absolutely scrumptious and huge, too.....
I hope you will keep documenting their growth for us and show us the ripened fruits...And maybe even one cur up into slices, when they are ready....! My mouth is watering just thinking about it...lol!

Sonia, nós tínhamos um pé de abacate no quintal e era lindo demais olhar as flores do abacateiro, mamae dizia assim.

Lindas imagens. Que verde!

Beijos

Dearest Sonia,
you are one sweet soul!
Thank you so much for these beautiful and very interesting images of avocado trees! I love eating avocados and now I shall have a mental picture of the avocado blossoms and the fruit ripening on the tree. I am sure avocados will taste even better now. :-)
Thank you for mentioning my blog on yours,
this is such an honour. I am so happy to have you as a friend!
A wonderful day to you and yours,
Merisi

P.S.:
I have been very busy during the last few days,
culminating in travel to Salzburg yesterday for a family celebration.

Oi,Sonia
Fiquei apaixonada com esse abacateiro, que bacana! a floração ,os frutos , o verde das folhas, bem viçosas. É uma árvore que cresce muito , precisa espaço, nao? No quintal da casa onde nasci tínhamos abacateiros , jaboticabeiras e outro dia vi suas jaboticabas aqui fiquei encantada, amo arvores frutíferas ou não, quintais, e suas fotos são excelentes.Obrigada por trazer esse prazer aos olhos.
Abraços

Thanks for sharing these wonderful images with us. I've never seen an avocado tree before, you know. I only see the avocados in the supermarket. ;-) You're so lucky to have your own tree in your backyard. ;-)

Beijos,
Paz
