Ragged Blooming Season

Hawthorn blossoms on Droop Mountain

Apples, cherries, peaches, pears--none of these bloomed this year on our ridge due to the Easter Snow. A few scattered hawthorn branches preserved flower buds, however. The wild cherries were more cautious in April, and are blooming in places I've never noticed them before. Perhaps there could be a small batch of wild cherry jelly, if the birds don't beat me to it.
