Hi Lynn,
I took this picture of the yellow cactus flower this morning. There is a cluster about to bloom in the next day or two... I'll post it if I get to the blooms in time.

Marie... you have a highly elevated instinct for finding plants. There is no other explanation!

I think it would be useful. You could put the request in to Dave and Trish for a

"Bulbs, Rhizomes and Corms" forum that would be a site-wide forum for all members. You could request to be moderator, too, if you like. I'll ask if you don't have time... but, I won't be a moderator. You know everything about those little orbs! Hurray!

I am kind of excited about the success I have had with a semi-dwarf peach tree I purchased from Stark Brothers a few years ago. It only did fair while in the ground, due to oleander and tree roots, surrounding it. So this winter I took it out of the ground and put it into a half barrel filled with miracle gro potting soil. That made it very happy and so far we have picked 18 very juicy, very sweet peaches with 15 more on the tree. This is a photo taken after a light rain of one of the peaches. ( am I talking too much ?) Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Thumb of 2011-07-08/quietyard/bfa2ae
