Peach Blossoms

So many fruits in full bloom: plums, currant, nectarine, and peaches. They are a full month ahead of 2013. Project budburst (see resources) is a useful tool to help us evaluate the changing climate and its impact on our own plants. A frost may prevent any fruit from these. Only waiting will reveal the damage.

I always dread the last and the first frosts. In the spring, it means all that abundance denied. In the fall, it signals the end of seasons of abundance. I do love the seasons though. Just when I am weary of the challenges of one season, I am relieve to move to the next.
