Peach blossoms

Peach Blossoms

Thank you everyone for sending your well wishes regarding my cedar fever. I am all better now thanks to the doctor's visit and the rain that washed down much of the pollin floating around.

Last week when Mark and I were out, he pointed out these peach blossoms. Pretty, but with a cold snap, they may not make it to spring. That happens when you have flip flop weather. It's beautiful and sunny so some things might start budding and then you get hit with below freezing weather and the new growth doesn't always survive.

Right now it is about 35F but with the wind chill, it feels like 29F. Pretty cold for around here. We're going to get Chinese food tonight. Some soup sounds good to ward off the damp cold.

I love to see these hints of spring that pop up when the weather starts to warm. Hope these little buds can hold on through the cold snap. At least the bugs are dieing, or so I hope!

Very good photograph and the subject particularly love, go a lot of bees and are nourished by the pollen and the nectar of these flowers.
Him be sure not turned, they are not mine but do not make no villain.

Thien, those are lovely. I hope that they make it through this bitter cold (I'm ready for spring!).

I passed an award to you today on my blog...my visits here always make my day!

My dad always told me, "It's not spring until the mesquite trees bud." It's a pretty good rule. If they starting putting out leaves, you can pretty much count on there not being another cold snap. It doesn't look like it will actually freeze this time, so maybe your peaches will make it.

I love peach blossoms as they remind me of Spring Festival! Alas, we don't have it here! Lucky you, Thien!
