We are about a month ahead of what's consider the norm in the orchard. This weather has been wacky, to say the least.
A few Pear trees have already blossomed on us and most of the Apple trees are already in their magical 'pink' stage.
Pink is the short stage right before full bloom. You will hear some apple farmers refer to it as the magical stage. I'd imagine that is because it is gorgeous and it doesn't even last long enough for you to blink!
These photos are from Saturday. Last evening, Monday night, we had a frost roll in. This is a very delicate stage for the trees so we are keeping our fingers crossed the frost didn't do too much damage. We'll know in another few weeks when we get actual fruit sets on the trees.
