I am trying to diversify.  We have two well established honey murcott mandarin trees, two kumquats, and four loquats.  Less established (and still needing great care) are a pomegranate, a blood orange, a white peach and a dozen blueberry bushes of mixed variety.  We had a frost-resistant avocado tree that my husband and I babied and covered every chance of a frost, but sadly, it was taken out by a limb that fell on it during a lightning storm last year.  Yes... I cried over it. ;-)  I do a vegetable garden every year, but find it exhausting to constantly be fighting the droughts and the pests.  Pouring energy into establishing trees seems much more productive in the long run!

I would love to sit in your garden and watch the birds Sentient. Just breathtaking.

These photos of your garden are beautiful and holding promise of some wonderful tastes later on. Your garden is very far ahead of mine. Not o sign of color in the tulips, although the buds are huge this year. Do you freeze or can or dry your fruit? Delicious!

Your fruit trees look so good!  I'm envious of you being in an area where apples and cherries grow well.  I'm in Florida, so I have no choice but to have citrus is my specialty. ;-)

I love spurge and have several varieties; I know it can take over. Given the soil conditions where you have it, seems like a great choice for that spot. The wall is lovely, and looks like a good "sitting" wall. Beautiful plants and great design! I can tell, you like loveliness.

I just love the picture you posted Sentient! I wish I was there right now. You have a lovely yard. Breathtaking. Charlie is a handsome dog too.

This scene is just lovely, with the stone or block wall in the background, beautiful greens and yellows and handsome Charlie enjoying it all. Do I see Alchemilla 'mollis', Common Name: “Lady's Mantle” on the right side? Whatever, it is a pretty color.
