Blooming Olives & Kaki Persimmons

Our native American olive (Osmanthus americanus) trees (or large shrubs) are just finishing up their blooming season. They have small white and very fragrant blossoms that are similar to those of its close relative, the tea olive (Osmanthus fragrans). The Japanese persimmon (Diospyros kaki) are also blooming now. They have small white blossoms that are square! With luck each of those weird little flowers will become a delicious persimmon by October. ~Jack
