Beautiful bee!
-
Fun fact: A honey bee has 5 eyes!👀 Her three simple eyes are located on the top of her head. (You can see one of those eyes in the photograph.) Simple eyes detect light, allowing her to sense if she is being approached by a predator. The two huge eyes, on the sides of her head, are called compound eyes. These eyes are made up of tiny lenses that piece together a wider image of what she is able to visualize.👀🐝

Different citrus varieties! Finger limes are so interesting, has anyone tried one before? 🍋

Repost from @sam_and_wild_violet_garden
These are the varieties of Lemons and Limes that I grow on a suburban sized block on the outskirts of Melbourne. If you are not sure which lemons and limes to plant in your backyard this might be helpful.
1.Australian Lime is sweeter that a normal lime and almost turns dark yellow to orange when left to ripen on tree.
2.Native Australian Finger Lime, prickly shrub/tree. The fruit are they taste sour like a lime crossed with a lemon and the pearls pop in your mouth when eaten.
3. Tahitian lime, very juicy traditional flavoured sour lime. Fruit can be picked green or left to ripen and turn sweeter as they turn yellow on the tree.
4. Kaffir Lime, grown for the leaves which are used in asian dishes.
5. Lisbon Lemon, very productive tree which produces very juicy sour lemons.
6.Lemonade lemon, very sweet without bitterness and can be eaten as a fresh fruit it's that sweet.
7. Meyer Lemon, very sweet and very productive, more cold tolerant than other lemons. The fruit turn a dark yellow almost orange on tree. It's though to be a cross between lemon and a mandarin or orange.
8. Eureka lemon is a true bitter lemon with lots of juice and high acid content.
I am able to grow so many fruit trees by using the backyard orchard culture technique which means they are planted much closer together than normal fruit trees would be in a traditional orchard, however it's important that they are kept pruned to a manageable size and height, this also makes picking fruit or netting the trees much easier.
