|This is an 'All-in-One' Almond tree|
|It was planted when the backyard was redone|
Almonds are closely related to peaches and nectarines, which are planted to either side of the almond tree on my slope. Those buds aren't open yet, but they are swelling up. If we get a late frost, that would not be good, which is part of the reason these don't do as well in zone 11 as they do in other zones.
|This is 'Elberta' peach|

I also found a new "helper" in the garden today - this cat has shown up before, but normally it runs away if it sees me. Today, it seemed very interested in my digging up weeds - maybe it wants to help?
|I think it belongs to one of my neighbors, although it doesn't have a tag...|
