Break open a cherry tree

Break open a cherry tree and there are no flowers, but the spring breeze brings forth myriad blossoms.

    • Out my window is a blanket of fog – subject for a sunnier day’s blog. I felt that the cheerful cherries would do better today, and it seems like they have. Snow in May – it just does not seem fair!

  1. Wow…that almost looks fake. 🙂 The cherry trees remind me of the blooming Bradford Pear trees down here in late March.

    • With their thick covering of blossoms, they do look like the pears…but instead of just lining the streets, we have thousands of them 🙂 And you’re right – they almost look fake!

    • …and it’s still raining. No worries – a few fresh morels make being in the rain worth it. And when it gets to be too much, there are always sunny photos to rely upon 🙂

  2. These are amazing. Are you under a frost warning tonight? It’s stinking cold here today. I think our low will be in the low 40’s tonight though. Hopefully no frost for you guys!

    • Yes, Dawn, we are under a frost advisory 😦 Or maybe even a warning – super 😦
      It was in the 40s and rainy for most of the day, but then the winds cleared everything off, which looks much nicer, but is quite chilly. I even broke back out the down ski coat. Oh May – you’re either growing unwanted weeds or freezing everything off. Where’s the happy medium? We brought in our unplanted garden plants…plan to put them in the soil tomorrow, so I hope this cold night thing doesn’t last long. Stay warm!
