I live in “orchard country” — used to be one of the largest peach and apple-producing regions in the state. We still have a lot of lot of orchards though and when the last snow / last ice burns the blossoms it’s a sad time, indeed. Not only poetically — but economically. Very sad. So anyway — this one struck a chord with me. Very nice.

We are a fruit growing region so I’m very familiar of with this particular problem … here it happens when it warms up too early and then snaps back with snow … Reply Björn Rudberg (brudberg) says: December 12, 2014 at 12:37 pm That late snow.. a killer for fruit..
