    Outlasting Spring Cold Snaps

    This past weekend we had 4 days with consistent temperatures below 30 F… in May. Sure a frost over night but snow fall and freezing temperatures come on. Wandering the yard today you wouldn’t know it had just snowed. 80 F sunny and the apple trees have started to bloom. Nature knows what it is doing, looking forward to watching them grow and hopefully a light harvest of multiple varieties. As for the cherry blossoms, they could care less that it was freezing out time to get a net so the birds and squirrels don’t eat every cherry like they did last year.

    Cherry Blossoms! and more

    Spring blossoms are so rewarding! I love enjoying the outdoors but there is something especially nice in seeing plants mature and thrive. Last year we got a few apple blossoms but nothing from the Cherry Trees. This year 2 of the cherry trees have a few dozen blossoms. Wait a few years and the whole yard will be a bloom! Take a moment and stroll the yard with me.
