I finally got the Plumcot moved. I should say "we" got it moved. There is no way I could have done it without my son. Thanks son! He moved the cinder blocks from each end of the large bed (now the raspberry bed) to build a raised planter for the tree, then moved all the soil from those areas to plant the tree! Hard work. And all he asks in return is a Dutch Bros. "Double Chocolate Mocha - blended, no whip." Thanks son! The tree has some teeny-tiny plumcots, I am not sure they will hold though, the tree is young, and we disturbed it moving it around.

The boysenberries and Bluecrop blueberries are ready to bloom. Legacy blueberry is ahead of the others. A few strawberries have put out blossoms too. The raspberries (Meeker) are taking over the 4 x 8 bed, even coming up in the cinder block holes and surrounding soil!

The day lilies are coming back for the season...
...and the mixed bed is growing like crazy. I think the soil may be too rich. There is a tremendous amount of foliage growth, more than normal. I hope the rockroses bloom. That bright green plant on the left is Golden Oregano.
I planted a new rockrose by the sidewalk. It is a Helianthemum, the others are all Cistus. I am not sure why both genus are called "rockrose." Or why there are even two, the leaves and flowers look the same to me!
