My freesia is blooming. I thought it is supposed to have nice scents, but I can’t smell any. Do I get Covid-19😜

This PeachyKeen tree oversets way too much. I’m not even 1/4th done here! Aiming for 4-6 inch gap. Hopefully, my grafts will slowly replace large scaffolds and I can rest a bit next year :slight_smile:

Here are the flower buds on my Tomcot. Mar 26. It’s only one year out from grafting, so I’ll have to pluck any fruit if they set. We have a couple nights in the low 20s next week, so they might get nailed if they progress much farther.

My wild plum burst forth with blooms yesterday, it’s got all kinds of buzzing insects hitting the blossoms. They are quite fragrant.

My peaches are maybe a week from full bloom, one of the pears is now. A few apples are about to start popping open. And my tart cherry bushes are close.

I’ll post pics later.

Both of these two trees are in pots in a garage. It is a tad warmer than outside so they bloom about 7-10 days earlier than my inground peaches.

I just moved the potted out today and will leave them out except for when it rains. I want to see if they can be peach leaf curl-free without spraying at all as long as I keep them dry.

Here is the Spring Snow.
