Blooming spring: and so it begins


The apricot, always the first, offers some few blossoms to the lukewarm spring sunshine today, even though temperatures last night went down to mid twenties and tonight might just hover around (or below) freezing.

There are, however, lot of still tightly closed buds where these came from, to feed the bees and hopefully make fruit. Spring fruit tree blossom time is also peak windy season here.

The newly planted goji berry, Lycium barbarum, aka Wolfberry, and a Kashmir pomegranate are wrapped against the possibility of freeze tonight. Once established, both should be able to tolerate the winter lows. Tomato cages have been temporarily redeployed to provide structure for the blankets.
