Everything was in bud or was blossoming, and many of the flowers still dripped with the recent rain.
The forsythia was in full bloom.
And the cherry trees were budding.
But this morning there are snow flurries.
While the snow is not sticking to the ground, you can see it accumulating a little on the trunks and limbs of the oak trees.
See that white stuff hanging on the the lichens? That is snow.
There is a small accumulation of snow on some of the limbs of the oak and of the pine trees.
I hope that this unexpected snowfall does not prevent us from having cherries and peaches and pears this year. It's been a few years since we last had peaches like this:
The trees used to be loaded with peaches, more than we could possibly eat.
Both Sword and Bow enjoyed the peaches. They were juicy and picked only once they had ripened.
But for the past few years, whether due to a late frost or for some other reason, we have not had peaches.
Let's hope this year will be different and that the snow flurries we are experiencing will not affect our future fruit yield.
