METEOROGological WINTER start1 December 2020

#METEOROLIGSCHEWINTER : On 21 December the winter officially starts, at least according to the #astronomische calendar.
For the #meteorologen and #klimatologen winter has already started on 1 December and the season lasts exactly three calendar months. The climatic seasonal classification where the seasons always start on the first of the month allows meteorologists to compare the seasons. According to the astronomical calendar, the #winter usually on December 21, but sometimes the 20th or 22nd is the start date.
On the first day of the winter season, the sun is perpendicular to the Capricorn. The differences in times and sometimes dates are due to the odd number of days of the tropical year (on which the calendar is based) and the introduction of the leap day.

Baby album of... fruit!
We all know the blossoms of fruit trees. We all know the fruit we eat. But what's in between ? So baby fruit.... Let's take a look at the fruit #vandeanedededge . What strikes me most of all is that fruit at an initial stage often seems to grow up on the stem. You can also see the remnants of the blossoms in both images. On the left you can see even several stages of the development of the fruit. These are plums. When I look at my plum trees, it's gonna be a fantastic plum year ! This hairy baby looks like a kiwi. But none of that is right . It's a.... ordinary apple ! At an initial stage, these apples are hairy. Later it becomes a ruddy, tasty, edible apple. These fruits, which are still swelling under the remnants of their blossom, become juicy, red-green pears. The fruits below are from another pear species, the well-known Conference. The balls you see below will be delicious, red cherries in a few months ! On the left picture you can see how the left side is fertilized. There a ball forms. The right side is unfertilized. That's where the fruit principle is going to die. This blog is part of the challenge of @Mevrouw Dot... that challenges us to perceive things from a different side. All photos are of course the property of Enigma. They were all taken in my own garden.

The Portuguese laurel cherries: a real insect blocker!
If you love living in your garden, make room for a Portuguese laurel cherry in your garden. In spring (from late April to somewhere in June) this hardy plant blooms with flower bunches of over ten centimeters. The flower bunches scents delicious, making them attract numerous insects. I sat there for about 15 minutes and photographed numerous visitors. As you get closer, a cloud of buzz rises up. But if you sit down for a while, they'll come back. Then if you move very carefully, you can get quite close with a camera. Especially butterflies and bees tend to fly away, but return when the coast turns out to be safe. More of my little paradise ? #naturephotography #photography #nature #garden
