At last Fat Buds and flowers on a Prunus Spinosa

The last few weeks with the biting cold wind and sub zero temperatures have made this one of the worst springs I have experienced in my garden. This has resulted in the deciduous trees being over six weeks later than last year. BUT what this means is that the display of flowers is fantastic. Here you can see how FAT the flower buds were just a few weeks before they burst open. One the buds began to show I brought the Prunus Spinosa into my glass house; this kept me from losing any. The tree is now in FULL BLOOM and is a riot of white!

  1. We as well have experienced one of the worst springs! Just when everything melts and is beautiful, we get another snow storm and are covered by 2 feet of snow. Finally though, I think we are out of the dog house, I only hope it hasn’t confused and damaged the trees.
