Early blossoms and buds

With temperatures across the nation averaging an astonishing 8.7 degrees Fahrenheit above average during the month of March, many trees and plants are blossoming and budding out about a month early.  I took a walk yesterday around the neighborhood to enjoy the beauty.

One of the troublesome aspects to this early spring is the impact of freezing temperatures on the fruit tree blossoms.  The past two nights have been well below freezing, so it will be an interesting test to see how well the plants and their fruit endure.
