Blooming Potential!

Pear 'Seckl' flower buds, maybe hundreds of buds!

Where there are flowers, there is the potential for fruit! My mini-orchard is starting to bear up to its promise.

Apricot 'Moorpark'

Cherry 'Lapin'

Grape buds! Finally!

My 'Honeycrisp' apple, for the first time looks to have buds of some sort. Some are flower and some leaves, until today, I had very little to tell me the tree was anything other than dead.

Not all the flower buds will be pollinated and not all will bear fruit. There is always the possibility of a killing frost this spring, and pests.
