Something has been bothering me for well over a week. Our flowering plum trees have been in full bloom for at least that long, and it seems awfully early for such occurrences.
Actually, I posted about the trees twice; once when they were budding, and later in full bloom. The ‘budding’ post was written on March 27. So, yeah, we’re a bit early this year… a month early.
Thing is, the cherry and peach trees are blooming as well and our orchardist friends are not too pleased. I only saw my first bumblebee of the year this afternoon, a little late to the party, but it might be a moot point. The snow tonight is going to be a problem.
