All the winter rain has kept everything pretty lush and healthy.

Ah, that's what Tat Soi looks like. I just planted some green tat soi seeds having no idea what it really is or what to do with it. Do you do with it what you would with other asian greens?

Pepino flowers in spring - wouw! Mine just started flowering now autumns here, and 14 days to the first frost (Live in Denmark, Northern Europe)

Spring is always a wonderful time in the garden if you look closely, as you have done Maggie.
The hidden message from these coloured flowers is actually in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum, which we humans can't see but bees can. Look at the interesting flower patterns on 'How bees see colour' at http://gears.tucson.ars.ag.gov/ic/vision/bee-vision.html
Cheers
