Cold Night for Apricot Blossoms

Got down to 25 last night. I’m on a hill and I have a little concrete around the apricot trees to provide some thermal mass.

Still some of the blossom petals are turning brown this morning:

Fortunately only about 20% of the blooms have opened up.

I did deploy the bird scares this morning. If I don’t, the house finches strip all of the blossoms off the apricot trees.
