Hope those peach trees give you good fruit Kathy.

I finally got myself outside today and pulled-up some of the black fabric & soaker hoses where the watermelons were last year.  Also, leveled the soil.  Some raspberries were sprouting under the black fabric, and some of the blackberries had rooted themselves through the fabric.

And I enjoyed my first deepblue iris too - they were in an ´easterbasket´ someone gave me.

Collecting rainwater in a barrel isn't possible up here, Barbara, but the containers can save a lot of water - I made the drainage holes 10 cm. from the bottom.

Kathy, how exciting to find peach tree seedlings! Give us an update now and then?

Whoa Chris!  You have been busy, and your efforts will be super when they are all producing and in bloom.   Do you collect rainwater for your plants?

Daniel, a friend of a friend gave me a plastic grocery bag full of Iris bulbs (?) or roots (?). Anyway I didn't know the color and wasn't sure where I wanted to plant them - and of course had never grown them. To simply get them in the ground,  I planted them in corrner next to A/C unit and figured I could dig them out and replant at a later day in appropriate place.  They grew!  They are blooming a beautiful purple color!  I agree, they don't need to be babied. 

My mode of doing away with grass has been to put down cardboard and cover with wood mulch from recycling center.  I did same with Iris - lots of cardboard to kill grass and weeds, lots of mulch, watered well and ignored. 

Kathy, good luck and happy growing your little peach trees. I'm thoroughly enjoying my nectarine.    

We have had more rain over the past three days - a real deluge late last evening.  It is breathtaking to see how green things are and how rapidly things are beginning to bloom.  I feel as if I've moved to a new state each time I hear the patter of rain on the windows. :)

I transplanted two tiny peach tree seedlings from the compost heap. I'll be watching them closely.

Two days of sunshine! The bleeding hearts are blooming, bee's are feasting on the redbud trees. And the dogwood won't be far behind. One of these days I'll learn to post photos from this gadget!

Forests! - a luxury to be able to look at them every day! But I think the fires are scary. Many leafy trees here in town, and there are parks and some woods at the other side of the country.

I see we're at about the same degree of latitude, the only difference is your continental climate - less clouds and more extreme temperatures.

Nice roof garden Chris!

Pictures at last! The first two of my roof garden and number three of my old kaffir lily with its annual explosion of colour.
