Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

{Our Japanese Somei Yoshino Cherry in Bloom + Hummingbird Hawk Moth}


It is now one week ago that I took these photos of our Japanese Somei Yoshino cherry in full bloom. The blossoms don't last that long and as the wind blows, they soon end up under the tree as a pinkish white carpet on the ground. These Somei Yoshino cherry blossoms are slightly pink, almost white and 5-petaled. You can read more info Cherry Tree Varieties as it is also by far the most numerous cherry tree in Japan.
Bumble bees feasting on the pollen of this gorgeous tree near our pond. Scroll down below to see also a Hummingbird Hawk moth (Macroglossum stellatarum).
Petals already floating in the pond...
The gazebo is in view from this angle of the pond.
This is towards the wood garden.
A carpet of petals on the ground...
Hummingbird Hawk Moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) is feasting on the pollen here. For more info click Hummingbird moth.
Would make again for an interesting Garden Tour from Book an Event with us.

  6. natuurlijk...een "pond"......en begrijp ik nou good dat je een tour door jullie kunt maken???? Pfffff....moet jij vaak blaadjes harken dan ;)!
    Ik ben manlief aan het opwarmen voor een nieuwe SLANKERE boom in onze voortuin....maar ik geloof niet dat ik dit ga winnen....de kluit van die oude boom is er nog steeds niet uit.......voel een "traumaatje"opkomen ;)!

    Lots of love!!!

  10. Wauw... wat heb jij een grote tuin, een park is het gewoon,
    en ook al zo'n mooie prunus, en ja het is eigenlijk te warm hier voor de tijd van het jaar, normaal is er zulk weer niet in maart, maar ik vind het best zo :)

    Oh!!!!You have a lovely Sakura,Somei yoshino. They are beautifully blooming! Sakura trees grow bigger and bigger,so mostly Sakura are planted in gardens,streets and mountains. How envious!! You have a large garden to have a big tree. I hope your Sakura will open soon with spring weather.
