We were so lucky that we got just enough moisture to freeze on the fruit tree buds and I don’t think any of them were damaged by the recent low temps. During the next two weeks, we should have an explosion of fruit blossoms around here. The peach and pear blooms are at the popcorn stage.
There are so many peach blossoms almost ready to open.
The pear trees are just full too. They’ll probably bloom a week or so after the peach trees bloom.
This tree has so many that they’re even coming out in places I wouldn’t expect to see blossoms or leaves.
We were told to buy late blooming apricots to keep them from getting damaged by our late freezes and apparently we did because our three plants are barely showing any signs of growth. With these warm days though, they’ll be blooming in no time.
Even the agarita has lots of buds and will have beautiful yellow blossoms soon.
Spring in Texas is gorgeous . . we have to absorb every bit of the beauty and hope that’s enough to get us through the miserable summer months!
