Early birthday present

Thursday, April 18, 2013

My DD sent me a 5 ft Mission fig tree and two Concord grape plants for my new place.Apparently she had trouble finding a company who could send plants to California.(insect worries)A company out of Georgia had insect free stuff that could be sent to Calif.It is funny that she sent me grape plants as I live in the middle of a vineyard.The grapes growing here are Barbara for wines.My favorite fruits are Concord grapes and Mission figs(black)I also love Santa Rosa plums.I bought a plum tree last month.I love the sour peel and sweet insides of fruit.So now I have 4 fruit trees,2 grapes and tons of old fashioned Iris from my mom and grand mothers gardens.They both passed away years ago.My brother has some of their Iris;he gave me a huge tub of bulbs.When DD buys her home ,I will pass on some to her.It is a good thing my new little apartment has a huge front yard.Of course, I also sprinkled sun flower seeds everywhere.I have all types,big,small and fancy orange ones.I hope the local critters don't think I planted a buffet for them.Off to the nursey for more seeds emoticon
