    The unexpected cold after weeks of 70*+ weather nearly killed all the flowers around here. Even the dandelions are huddled down in the grass waiting for the warm to return. My rose canes are looking decidedly peaked but the peonies are starting to make a come back. Still, it'll be a while before we have anything blooming now. :(

    Spring hasn't even begun to rear it head here in New England. As I write this, the sound of the sleet beating on the window is distracting me from my work. Thanks for reminding me of what's to come E,L,

    The Dogwood and Azalea blooms have come and gone here as well. I took these pictures on the first of April, I just had not downloaded them until last night. RH, I hope that before long the sleet is gone for good. You never can tell, we had snow last week. Yes, snow in April. It was falling pretty hard for about an hour, but it didn't stick.

    Don't fell like your the only one Faclon. All of our fruit trees were in full bloom so they are a total loss this year. We did manage to save the strawberries though. So it looks like we will at best have strawberries, blackberries, and maybe elderberries this year for fruit.

    Most are doing well, I think the lemon tree is dead. We had some fruit on the trees last year, but the d@mn crows got to them first. Another couple of years and they should be really producing. Especially if I can keep the crows at bay. [sawgunner]
