Good trade, because my peach tree is pathetic.
Look at today's harvest. Tomorrow's should be bigger yet.

yumm!! they look delicious !!
Well the raccoons have discovered my peach tree yesterday morning I noticed quite a few half eaten peaches under the tree as well as cleaned off pits
I picked up the half eaten ones and put them in the trash can on the patio
lol I went out this morning and not only am missing the almost ripe ones from the tree but they had knocked over the trash can and finished the half eaten ones

Sigh good thing I picked a bunch yesterday cause it looks like that will be it

I couldn't rep you yet but had to note what a wonderful recommendation you made. I couldn't wait for winter reading once I found my library had it on the shelf. Thanks so much for recommending the book!! It is a very informative AND a very funny book.

I just bought and planted this Limelight Hydrangea. I read up about it online and seems to hold up great even during droughts (which we experiencing here) and the blooms turn a pinkish color in the fall which will be really nice.

Such a pretty hydrangea. The one I have is a real water hog. I went with the landscaper recommendations for many bushes and his suggestion had been Endless Summer. It is pretty but it needs more pampering than expected. Your choice sounds so much wiser! Good luck with it.
