Would someone please do a better job of giving the cherry trees a warning about blooming a bit too early each year - they're clearly not listening to me. Here's two of my cherry trees, and they're about to have their blossoms burst open any second now. Unfortunately, the warm temps are taking a break, and we're about to have freezing or near freezing temps every night this week.
It'd be nice if some year I actually got a megaload crop of cherries, and then it'd ALSO be nice if I could enjoy them. But between spring freezes and birds, I've never once gotten a cherry off of these trees that I enjoyed.
This one here isn't a fruiting cherry, just an ornamental weeping cherry. Still, it sure does look good this time of year! We're supposed to have strong winds blow through today - I really hope it doesn't tear off all the flowers.
