And more blossoms

New flowers on the sweet cherry–we’ve gone from only at the very top to continuing on down. I feel like I can never get enough of those flowers. Some of the earlier ones are starting to throw sweet confetti.

Top, right, and left, I’m trying to give a better sense of the whole of the mango. The new buds at the top? They weren’t there at the beginning of the week. We had a three-day heat wave and it actually hit 94.7 degrees yesterday–in March. So strange. The plant life took off all over the yard.

I have no idea how many actual mangoes, if any, we’ll get this year but it looks promising and the honeybees are definitely trying their best.

Almost as good as being there. ALMOST. I can almost remember the sweet scent of cherry blossoms…

Confetti – just exactly what I think of when the petals come raining down. So far all we have are maple blooms, and glad of them, so not many petals yet. But our cherry buds are swelling – it won’t be too many more weeks!
