We sometimes have frost in the nights while the fruittrees are blossoming. Most of the time all goes well. When frost is expected they spray the trees, so a protective layer of ice forms around the blossoms. Sounds strange, but it works.

It's warmer - and definitely wetter this year. Another severe storm during the night. Went out to check on bunnies and discovered tree limb broken, and am thankful that the wind didn't whip it around and cause damage to plants or house. And much cooler this morning - will it hurt all the things with blossoms?

I much prefer blackberries to mulberries. It'll be another 2 months before either are ripe. I did get my strawberry patch weeded yesterday. Blooms galore. Again, I envy those of you in warmer climates.

Great pics Daniel.  I debated whether I wanted to drag my 12' ladder from garage to back yard and then climb up on it to pick the mulberries.  Decided "a taste" from branches I could reach was good enough - leaving remainder for the birds. :)

Those photos look so fresh & pretty Daniel. I'm partial to lilacs.

Comment by Daniel W on April 26, 2015 at 5:58pm

Barbara, I'm glad you had a chance to taste your mulberries.  I love mine.  They are so delicious.

Some photos from today.  My yard in Battleground WA.

Welcome back Randy! Hope your trip was everything you wanted it to be!  We have had the rainiest spring in several years - thunderstorms today. I'm in awe at how fast things are growing and blooming.  Ate mulberries for the first time off my tree - so sweet even more so than blackberries which they look very much like.

After two weeks absence, it's time to tackle the garden full force!

Joan is posting from hospital, so she must be getting better.
