this week's flowers - first week May

This week the black pepper (Piper nigrum) continues to develop nicely. I'm waiting for one or two berries at the base to turn red, which I've read is when you harvest them and prepare for drying.

The blackberries are in bloom this week as well. Here, you can see both flower, and under it, developing fruit. (note: however hard I've tried, I'm unable to check email on this variety of BB)

It's almost Litchi time! Here is a close up of the developing fruit. I estimate about another 5-6 weeks until harvest.
