(Gotta throw in a little Rock-and-Roll once in awhile)
Lo and behold! There are a few things in flower at the Country Mouse House! One appears to be a cherry tree. A couple of years ago, we spotted cherries on it, but it’s so close to a bunch of other trees, we never could remember which one it was. Last year, our tree fruit was sparse at best, and I don’t think this tree went into flower at all. Well, just look at it now!
From a distance:
Up close and personal:
Those are cherry blossoms, yes? I sure hope so! Although, with the bird and other wildlife sightings these days, we might not get to taste any. We’ll have to see.
Here is our little “grove” of cherry plums:
Farmer Joel discovered these quite by accident a couple of years back. They were the tiniest plums I’ve ever seen, but very tasty. The only not-so-great thing is that the pit is almost the size of the fruit itself, so it’s a lot of work for a little fruit. If we get a good harvest this year, I’ll try to can something with them. Maybe jelly.
And now for some other spring blossoms:
I love my daffodils and narcissus!
Anything blooming in your garden yet?
