Gorgeous flowers. Click for the close-ups.

The forecast is for no leaf curl disease this year because I paid a professional to spray my peaches this time, but also because the foreseeable forecast is for no rain. It’s been bad.

My Tropic Snow is the only tree I didn’t get around to pruning this winter–mostly because it grew so little last year while barely surviving the loss of so many leaves.

But wow, look at it now.

For whoever else might need to know this, the guy who did the work said that raccoons won’t climb chicken wire: too unsteady and flimsy feeling. Meaning I *can* keep them out!

(The squirrels, though, I dunno…)

Oh, what a lovely touch of spring! Thank you for sharing the flowers. We are getting up to 12” of snow today, so the glimpse is very welcome!

Wow oranges and peach blossoms?
Maybe we will see fruit tree blossoms in late April in Toronto. More likely early May. And there are no oranges …

Those are your lemons next to them? I am sitting in my easy chair having just driven home through heavy snow. I am hoping my plow guy gets here before morning. You give me hope that speing will come sometime. Wish we could send you some of this persipitation!

Wonderful picture – wouldn’t that make a great speckled yarn colorway? Green with peach, lemon and orange fruit!
