Apricot Update - 2019

I was a bit surprised over the weekend when I was checking my fruit trees and noticed buds ready to explode on my apricot tree. Yesterday I noticed the first flowers. I checked the good ol' LJ archives and saw that it was pretty much right on time compared to last year. I'm a little surprised that it is about 5 days sooner this year since last year seemed unseasonably warm. We're finally seeing some temps in the 60's, so I hope that holds. Let's see if we get as much fruit (or more!) as last year. Now I'll be paranoid about an early spring freeze.
