This past week saw the rapid expansion and growth of Sugar Maple foliage,
The fading of some early spring wildflowers,
And the fresh blooms of new arrivals in the sequence of bloom,
Plants within a species don’t bloom simultaneously, an adaptation that helps avoid catastrophic losses due to environmental extremes. There is a frost warning for tonight, but only 10 – 20% of the wild apple trees have started to bloom. Hoping we get through this with plenty of blossoms …and apples… to enjoy!
