It's that time of year, even if a bit early in these parts. The apple blossoms are here and fading fast. How do I know? Last year I posted a photo of this same tree in full 'explosion' of blossoms. This year's early spring and the 'killer frost' of last Tuesday took its toll on all the beautiful colors and aroma of our apple trees. Why do I know the frost was devastating? Hey, it killed all our bamboo on the side and even dog urine doesn't kill that stuff. Most people hate it, but not us. It provides a natural buffer of sounds from the 'passing parade.' How destructive was the frost? Stop back in September,when the apple crop comes to harvest.
