Bulb bed update, etc.

The new bulb bed is showing lots of activity, with nearly 1/3 of the bulbs already up, even though it was just planted a little less than a month ago.

Found this nice little apple nestled in the Anna tree; it's about 1" in diameter; the tree isn't blooming as much as it did last year, so looks like production will be less than 1/2 of last year's, unless it's just getting a late start.

The nectarine tree is blooming nicely, though I haven't noticed any fruit yet; the lemon on the other hand has quite a lot of fruit, which makes my wife happy.  The grapevines are waking up and the Ein Shemer is getting its' first blossoms.  Last year's Asiatic lily is looking to bloom soon, as are the climbing roses.  The Dahlias are coming up and over all it's starting to look pretty good out there.

I'll leave you with a picture of one of my cats on her favorite perch, the playset in the backyard, where the  Queen can survey her domain.
