SPRING is comi . . . OOPS!

Post  JimLewis on Thu Mar 06, 2014 8:00 pm

Yesterday the red maples (Acer rubrum) started to bloom. That's our first sign of spring around here.

But now, our weather radio told us to expect an ice storm tonight . . . BUMMER.

No ice anywhere near me this morning. Just drizzling rain.

Thankfully.

Yay! Glad you missed the ice! We had a light dusting of snow this morning. Tomorrow the forecast is 50's -60's. My Apricot buds are swelling; one bud is showing color. Last year it bloomed in Dec-Jan.

We had an inch of snow then it iced all night, but rain washed it out this morning. I don't have any buds swelling yet.

Dang. That sucks Joe.

Nothing in Raleigh. Just lots of rain.
I hope power restores soon for you.

Spring Has Arrived?

Post  bonsaisr on Fri Apr 11, 2014 3:30 pm

Spring is finally here in Central NY. Iris reticulata and the black pussy willow are in bloom, a month late. Snowdrops of course, & crocuses are peeking.  Very Happy 
I have been repotting like mad, and I am about to redo my Korean hornbeam forest. Some trees are out on chairs on the back porch, waiting for the table to be put together. We will still have frost, until the beginning of May.

I feel sorry the way you have to carry your trees in and out some time.

Spring Has Arrived?

Post  bonsaisr on Mon Apr 14, 2014 2:00 am

It's our twice a year routine in the temperate zones. Some people with a small collection put their plants on a cart & wheel it in & out of the garage. Mine will go back in on Tuesday for two or three days. We do this so that they have early exposure to sunlight with smaller leaves & less sun scorch.
Woohoo! cheers My Akebono cherry will be in bloom during Passover, just the right time to recite the Blessing on Blossoming Fruit Trees. The crabapple will be right behind. It is the custom in Chicago to go out and scour the city looking for trees to bless. It is supposed to be any two fruit trees of different varieties. Blueberries count.

Thinking bout it...I am a bit like my dog bubu where it comes to my trees...constantly moving his bones (trees)
I have so many different conditions/ sun exposure in my en that I am also constantly moving them to find the best condition for each tree.

It snowed again early Monday morning.

This is not even fair. The universe is conspiring against me.

Spring is comi…. oops

We had snow today and it is going below freezing again. The few trees I had outside are back in the sunporch. This is not unusual for April. We had hyacinths for Passover as every year. It will warm up again by Friday.
