My fruit trees are blooming.  First the peaches and Asian plums.  I have several genetic dwarf peaches - they grow at most 6 ft tall.  Unfortunately they seem to be California-adapted and don't do well here.  The flowers may have frosted.  We'll know soon.  The Asian plums may also have lost their embryonic fruits, but I looked very close and just maybe there are some viable babies.   Now the sweet cherries are blooming, and pears, and a European cherry.  Next, apples, pie cherries, and grapes.  And mulberries -yum.  Meanwhile, we've had 2 rhubarb pies, and enough on the plant for about 20 more.

Here is my buddy Charlie with 2 sweet cherries.  I prune them drastically every summer to dwarf them.  The method ("Backyard Orchard Culture"  was developed for California, but I've discovered it works great for fruits here in SW Washington.

I'm surprised apples grown down that far south. What's an agarita?

Cool pictures Dallas .. I will check out that site.
Yes in my yard I have a variety of things .. Apple trees and pomegranates, grape vines. Agaritas, berries, etc. I also have Purple Martin houses and plants for hummingbirds with bird baths and such.

Okay, I really need to get some control over myself. Today I bought Russian sage:

And a Bolivian Jew (for my shaded patio):

And a grape tomato plant:

Well, those are just pics I found online. Nothing I took. You have pomegranates and apple trees down in Austin?

Comment by Steph S. on April 11, 2012 at 12:02am
I'm enjoying your plant pictures Dallas. The yard has weeds now since the rain .. So I have to go and weed eat soon. I have many grape vines and pomegranates and some apple trees and blackberries. I'll have to get some pictures to post here.

I've been growing lemon thyme, Greek oregano, dill, and rosemary for weeks, but I got some pots on Freecycle, so I bought some Italian parsley, chives, French lavender, and some boxwood basil today (below):

 

 

Also bought a jubilee tomato plant:

 

And bought another Opuntia vestita again, since I lost mine last year:

 

And an Opuntia microdasys (bunny ears cactus). The one I got is yellow, but I prefer the white:

 

And last week I bought a Mammillaria pilcayensis:

 

 

And a green wheel sempervivium:

 

And some Coral Reef Chinese sedum:
