A Slight Correction

On Friday I posted that the nectarine tree had blossomed. I will now retract that. It looked like some buds were right on the bursting point. I was wrong. Today should be the day when I can declare that it has officially blossomed. So it's just under a week after the peach tree. I also said that the apricot had pretty much fully blossomed. The closer I looked the more that I saw that it was probably only half blossomed. That's good! More flowers yet to come! It's already quite beautiful. Perhaps the weather will have set things back a few days. It was absolute shit yesterday with winds hitting 60 MPH at the airport. I had to retrieve the garbage cans from the street as they had blown down the driveway. It was a good day to just stay inside and recover from our St Patty's Day party on Saturday. It must have been a good party. I don't remember half of it.
