I was poking around the back yard and just discovered that what I thought was several sunflowers in bloom is actually just a single 7-bloom monster, and there are a couple more blooms coming out, assuming I start watering it myself. We've had the wettest spring I can recall since moving here 12 years ago. We might have passed 20 inches since last October-ish, while the 18 months prior to that our neighborhood totaled just 3 inches. Average is around 10-11 inches per year, so this has been nice. My finicky avocado is fruiting in year 2, although it might be best to remove them so it focuses on more growth; the dwarf peach is covered in fruits, if I keep it watered the birds should get a delicious harvest!

The rain has made the garden very green.  I am also an herbalist so things like Angelica and Valerian are home here.

Anyone looking for a willow that's compact and ornamental I suggest the Salex Integra, "Hakuro Nashiki' (Dappled Japanese Willow).

The leaf tips are white and pinkish.  Stunning against a green background.

Thanks Diane,
Its been a slow process. This is the same spot as the food forest when we first moved onto our bare land.
