Those are lovely, especially the Japanese white peach.

Thanks!
Did you see the one I took last year?
The overcast lighting was very interesting and made the whole thing have a closed, almost indoor feel. It reminded me of the garden scene and the death scene in The Last Samurai.

After our gray winters, I love this time of year. I'm rather impatient with the incessant rain, however. I had hoped to plant some roses last week, but it has been too wet. Perhaps, later this week.

The rhododendren looks interesting. I've never tried one of those.

Do you feed your magnolias an acidic fertilizer to make them bloom?

Those are lovely! Is the fruit edible, or just a smallish sort of fruit that ornamental trees tend to give?

Quite edible, I assure you


And yummy, too!
We made peach marmalade from most of this batch (I can't believe it's approaching 2 years since we picked it - it literally seems like yesterday that I was preparing to go to Media West 2004).

Re: Quite edible, I assure you
Are you going to be at Media*West this year? I'd love to meet you in person!

Alas, no
Not this year, I'm afraid.

I'll definitely keep you posted on any future con attendance, and keep a lookout for yours!

Re: Alas, no
Ah, what a pity!

I always go to Media*West, so that'll be easy if you ever come back to it. Others are bound to change a bit.

Always MWC, got it
Wish I'd met you at MW 2004!

The people in your icon look vaguely familiar, but I can't quite place them - are those Rose and Ten?

Re: Always MWC, got it
And the irony is, I was there. I haven't missed a Media*West since they were in the old hotel.

You got it - Rose and Ten, in a scene from "Tooth and Claw." The whole scene just screams "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." (Actually, the whole episode does...)

Re: Quite edible, I assure you
That's the question I was going to ask - do you manage to get edible fruit from them? What about the pear tree? And how do you keep the birds from eating all the fruit first?

Beautiful pictures.

Ooooh. They look perfect!

Re: Quite edible, I assure you
Thanks - I'll let you know if they're any good. I'm hopeful for the peaches, white peaches and pears, not so much for the sakura (cherry), red delicious apples (it's a dwarf variety), and nectarines.
