Cowlitz Peach. A work in progress. 4.24.19
They look great!
Never heard of pink squash before. Is the flavour different?
One of my favourite things to do is to visit gardens.
Loam, you never show too many flowers or photos. Your work inspires me.
I love flowers. Wish I could/would spend more time cultivating them. Keep the pics coming!
Nice looking "wild" flowers, Loam.
I love to look at beautifully coloured flowers!
Joan, I like your ground cover choices, especially portulaca. It has beautiful flowers. I also like the looks of purslane and clover.
I liked the clover in our lawn when I was young. I remember looking for 4-leaf-clovers and found ones with 6 or 7 leaves.
This spring, you thought it would be a good idea for me to give my avocado tree another year to see if it would come back. I left it, but one day I touched it and it felt loose in the ground. I gave it just a slight tug and it popped out. The roots were totally rotted.
I took down the little greenhouse I had around it and now have corn there. I planted them at least a month late, but I looks like I'll get some.
Daniel, your yellow echinacea is lovely! It will give you years of pleasure. I had a clump in Spokane and loved it. I also had a patch of white and of course, I had the usual purple. It provided me with a lot of pleasure and they were not difficult to grow, not the least bit fussy. The self-sowed into masses.
I must admit, I had automatic soaker hoses that kept my garden well watered but not overly so.
Daniel, I agree, stop fighting nature if we can. I have made the meadow my wildlife viewing place and that is where I watch the birds, deer, and that chipmunks remain after our very effective and efficient cat cleared them out. I try to make safe places for them, however, the cats outsmart the little critters and me.
I have my garden in the greenhouse and on the terraces but I am going to have to put up some kind of barrier if I want flowers. I have a couple of experiments going, one using deer resistant plant choices and the other using electric wire if L & L approve. If they don't go along with my idea, I will figure something else out.
You deer photos give me peace.
I'm sorry to learn of all the lost trees and the long periods between rain. We had a heavy downpour yesterday.
All our time and energy goes into trying to keep the smelter from being built in Newport and the effects it will have on the forests. I am going to a meeting tonight where a forester will be discussing the impact of smelter discharge on the forest --- not good, I hear. I hope to talk with him after his presentation.
My prediction of drying soils, drying forests, massive fires appear to be his message.
