The flowering crab apple trees in our cul de sac are in full bloom. Haven’t seen them this full of flowers for the last several years – thought the trees were dying (they’re more than 40 years old). I wonder whether the harsh winter could be responsible for this lush display. It’ll last another few days and then the flowers will drop. Haven’t seen much in the way of pollinating Insects – I wonder whether there will be any fruit at all this year.
