Joe, my favorite peach is double-blossom "Saturn" -- not to be confused with the "Saturn donut" peach sold at grocery stores and some nurseries. Here's mine from Dave Wilson nursery on Nemagard rootstock. The blossoms are just about spent now and there are 2-3" leafs poking out just about everywhere. Immediately surrounding the tree are daisies that come up every year.
