Strange Little Flowers

These funny little green flowers are almost too easy to miss. They hang down between the leaves so look almost live a deformed leaf. They are the flowers on my persimmon tree. This year there are heaps of them so hopefully we will get a good crop. Last year was the first year it had any fruit and we got about 8 persimmons. We had to pick them and continue ripening them inside because the birds are drawn to the bright orange globes and start to peck at them. This is my very favourite fruit and they have a relatively short season so fingers crossed I will be eating lots of them in May/June
