- Onto berries and blooms....
The Retama is beautiful. This tree has green bark and rather nasty thorns. These tiny little flowers are beautiful and it continues to bloom throughout the summer. Rains bring more blooms our way. The foliage of this tree is so graceful.
Our deer browse the foliage and will enjoy the legumes to come. Bobwhite quail (we have Blue Quail also) and other birds eat the seeds and the bees are enjoying the blooms now.
Seed pods are already forming on early blooming bushes:
I love these fuzzy berries. This is called Littleleaf Sumac. Littleleaf Sumac is one of our few thornless plants. Everything out here seems to have thorns! The hairy little fruits are beginning to mature and will feed quail, turkeys and birds. It's a good nesting place for birds, the bush is dense and provides protection.
