Heirloom bulb

This flower had naturalized on a lawn on Lake Dr. I was told by a neighbor it was a very old fashion flower and that it was a bulb. I will try to load 4 pictures of it. Can you name my mystery flower?

Slow to leaf out on Ash trees

We have several ash trees approximately 15 years old that are very slow to leaf out. Some of the trees only have the lower half leafing out sparsely. Is this due to the draught and how do we help them recover if possible? We have been putting a slow drip on them for several hours every week.

Fruit on Young Peach Tree

We were given a small unidentified peach tree 3 yrs ago. This year is the first time it had blossoms (lots) and little fruit starts. Should we take off some of the small fruit..and if so when? Overall it seems quite healthy, is on the Northeast corner of house and protected some from a screen porch. It is approx. 10-12 ft. high. I am a Master Gardener intern and enjoying it very much.

rotting and shriveling up leaves on baby watermelon and cantelope plants

We planted in our greenhouse watermelon and cantelope seeds. They came up really healthy and spring green color. This week there has set in a cocoa brown colored plague on the upper portion of the leaves. The underneath area of the leaves and the stock are ok. What shall do? I am attaching a picture of the disease. Our greenhouse is quite moist and humid, especially this last week with lots of rain. Thanks, My phone is 541 968 6056 Steve

oh deer

What is a realistic way of protecting two fruit trees (one pear, one plum, about 20 - 25 feet apart) in our back yard from urban deer? How does one measure, construct and maintain a deer fence around these individual fruit trees? How can it be constructed that mowing under and around the fence is not a ++#^&*( pain?
