Peach blossoms

Part of my backyard mini-orchard. I have apples, peaches, pears, sweet and sour cherries, plums, and paw paws. Southern highbush blueberries here and there. Mayhaws in the hedge. Maybe this will be the year I remember to spray the peaches.

Daffodils along the fence

Last year I got up the nerve to ask my neighbor if I could remove the Japanese honeysuckle rooted on his side of the fence that was a constant maintenance headache on mine. We reached an accord and I removed a mass the size of a queen sized mattress. I've now got climbing roses planted here and there along the border. The first show here is a mass of daffodils.
