Almond Blossoms


Wild Strawberry




We were under a freeze warning last night.  I hope these delicate blossoms survive the next few very cold days. We are looking forward to the first fruit on our young trees! We had help on the farm yesterday covering tender onions, grapes, and a few other things with frost covers.  The covers will remain on until this cold snap passes. 

We have a long lingering cold season in these northern hills, and such a short growing season.  For that reason, I never put the sweaters and jackets away for the summer.  You never know when you may need them!  

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you something to look forward to!

I miss my fruit trees
many in the past I planted
and put sweaters up twice
and now this morning in the high 30's..

It hailed just a 1/4 mile from me, so we lucked out. I hope your plants faired out well.I had some rhubarb cake the other day and love that stuff.

Nan. The almond blossoms are lovely, aren't they? This is their first year to bloom here. I am hopeful!

Ernestine, Leave those sweaters out! Weather has gotten weird, I think. We woke to a dusting of snow... on May 15th!

Steve, Hail is so damaging; glad it missed you. We are hanging in there through this cold spell. It will be a while before we know the effects. Mmm, rhubarb cake sounds good. I am planning to use some today, but was thinking of an old fashioned crumble.

Thank you all for visiting. Enjoy the day!

The blossoms are lovely, and my mouth is watering in anticipation of all the fruit those trees will bear (if the cold doesn't harm them). Love the web in the final photo, too.
