Bloom Time. Oregon Curl Free Peach. 3.10.15
Bloom Time for Oregon Curl Free Peach. 3.10.15
Last night aspirated the oral chemo. Rough. One day at a time. This is Oregon Curl Free peach in bloom. It's interesting to compare to the genetic dwarf peaches, which have larger, more vivid pink flowers, packed close together. I don't know if these will bear this year. They are reported not to need a pollinizer, but I did use the paintbrush yesterday to transfer pollen from genetic dwarf varieties to these flowers.
Can't go to Battleground today, but the photos are good for me to muse over.
