Spring plantings.

Gorgeous Azalea by the front door, with a contorted Witch Hazel behind it.

Unbelievably huge Lenten Rose in the shade garden at the front of the house.

Avacado tree started from a pit. If grade school kids can do it, so can I.

Front row:Green Peppers-Early California Wonder. Back row: Tomato - Sub Arctic Plenty.

Left row: Tomato-Big Beef Hybrid. Right row: Pepper-Super Chili.

We also moved one rose bush to a sunnier location and relocated two Leather Leaf Viburnum to a shadier spot. California Poppies that we planted weeks ago are finally starting to come up, now that we have had weather that is a bit warmer. I read that the plants here this Spring are about 3 to 4 weeks behind schedule.

More updates as things happen.

We grew avocadoes from a pit too...the thing ended up enormous and we kept having to prune it!

It's nice to hear from you again, Doug.

Your life sounds so peaceful, and beautiful. I look forward to seeing your gardening throughout the spring and summer months.
