my fig tree got really big those red flowers is robin hood rose, I transplanted it there this year and it took a long time to get going so it is small it got quite a bit of die back where it was before which was a northern exposure with little shelter. here I hope it will do better.

my feet hurt and my legs ache after this walk, (plus did yard work too for a while picked up logs and did some weed wacking, love to see those weeds get wacked,) because I wore my brand new filas for the first time the traffic was horrendous, the mosquitos were really bad in spotsincluding when I was cleaning and mowing the hill, yikes! so I itch as well.even with a head net they attacked by arms and back, very hard to do work when your being attacked¬† my mimi monsters.lol by the way do you like my filas? these don’t look like gorilla feet, lol.

more walk about/peach tree talk

my poor peach tree has the bad case of leaf curl, I might have to chop it down as I read about the treatments and it si too extensive and iffy to waste time or money, I read that red haven is one that is resistant so I will be getting a couple in the late summer early fall.¬† this really sucks after seeing such pretty flowers. I think it’s roots may hve hit a water pocket underground and is just to wet, makes sense it is a bit wetter on that side then the south side of my house. did get a couple of apple trees tho planted them last week. a yellow delicious and a gala. yummy. maybe i will post some pictures of them.

anyway here are some more pictures I took yesterday, anyone know what kind of bush this is? the flowers are softly sweet and it gets red berries on it and I love it, let me guess it is not native isnt it?
