Blooming Tuesday - Fruit Tree Blossoms

Our weather is all crazy - we had 60 mile an hour winds on Friday, it froze night Saturday Night and Monday it was 90*, today it is windey again. My poor plants! I am watering today like crazy.
~*~*~*~*~
With the hot weather yesterday the blosssoms on the fruit tree's are all starting to open up.
Here are a few pix:
Cherry tree's in blossom.

The apricots and plums haven't blossomed yet. I hope the frost on saturday night didn't hurt them.

~*~*~*~

I also wanted to show you my newest bleeding heart. I am sorry to say I can't remember it's name, but it is supposed to be this lime color - isn't it awesome! My other bleeding hearts aren't in bloom yet. They are all the darker green leaf color.

The weather is nuts around here too. Beautiful fruit blooms. My bleeding heart is just now emerging from the soil.

I love the fruit blossoms! The bleeding heart is lovely too!

Is it just me, or is this weird weather? We were cool and overcast, but now we are back to our 'normal' May weather of sunny (hot) and high 80's.

Your bleeding heart is wonderful, and looks like it really enjoys that spot. Love your fruit blossoms, and man o man what great looking garden soil!!! Have fun:)

We had another frost last night and it's supposed to be in the 80's Thurs. Plants don't know what to do! Love the fruit tree blooms I'm sure they smell as good as they look! Jean

You have room for a large garden! Have fun there! Can't believe you just had frost recently. Wow. ~~Rhonda

Suzanne said...

Love that freshly tilled garden. The soil looks so wonderful!

Aiyana said...

What an amazing swing in weather! We have three choices here; ok, warm, and hot!
The bleeding heart has such beautiful foliage. Hard to decide which is best--flowers or leaves!

Does anyone have any ideas how to slow down fruit trees from blossoming to early so the late frost don't kill the blossoms? I thought about buying an ice machine and putting ice in heaps onto of the base of the tree to keep the roots cold on warm days. I also thought of putting white plastic around the base of trees and only allow small amounts of water to seep into the root base thereby slowing the bloom growth a bit. I also tried smudge pots but they don't work here in ok because of the wind. I feel sorry for one huge orchard of peach trees here in Oklahoma as they have lose two straight harvest to late killer frost. They even hired helicopters to fly over head to try and save them on night. Any ideas would be appreciated. Please forward to any blog that might feel my pain. (-: thanks. Here in Oklahoma I have lost a lot of fruit over the past 3 years and its discouraging. I don't know how to get my info on this blog so here's my e-mail. thanks Terry Sowards oklanoni@sbcglobal.net
