Weather here is still wet, wet, wet. Sweet alyssum, torenia, blue lobelia, petunias, portulaca, ice flowers, clover, daylilies, golden raintree, shasta daisies, and echinacea are blooming. Mulberries and black raspberries have ripe fruit. Apples have green fruit, and so does the plum tree for the first time. I've only been able to pick a little fruit because of the rain, though. >_< But the newly sown grass seed is growing like mad. :D I have the old barrel about halfway empty now.
