Early Spring

I have some early blooms to share...

Is February too early for peach and pear blooms?

I had good pears last year in the drought, but the peaches didn't set...

I'm not really expecting a second year of pears, but I wouldn't complain if I got some.... A friend is taking the Master Gardener course offered by the extension service, and she tells me that peaches are difficult for the home gardener to grow in GA.

Here's hoping for a bit of luck... I really like peaches...


getting some nice camellia blooms.

I grew these beauties from seeds.

I still have bulbs...

These corydalis can get out of hand and require pulling... But they're pretty...

How about that cat!!!

Thanks for the link to this blog, Stone. :) Is your cat carrying something small and fuzzy?

I wonder why peaches are supposed to be hard to grow ... in GEORGIA??? I'm in Texas, and people keep telling me peaches are hard to grow here. It's the same level as my grandma's place in Louisiana, and she had a nice peach tree. Mine did fine the first year, only lost one due to extreme drought last year. The other one is budding out nicely and has some blossoms. Anyway, I hope your peaches do well. :)

When the cat finished with it, the fuzz was all that was left.

Peaches have a terrible problem with rust, and various other diseases. The trees grow fine, getting edible fruit is a whole nother deal.
