So much hope!

So much hope!

Apple blossom buds Bee and blossoms Butterfly and blossoms

I was very worried after the little snow storm we got on April Fools Day, but hope remains 🙂

Now, there are still many nights between now and our guaranteed last frost date, but for now the bees are buzzing, the butterflies are fluttering, and the fruit trees are holding on.

Maybe…just maybe…we’ll have a good fruit year this year.

    I hope you have a good fruit year as well. Our first crops struggled bit around this same time last year. Some made it and some required replanting. Between the weather and the birds, the crops put up a good fight and ended up winning after all. your pictures show great hope indeed.

    Hang in there Melissa. I live in Nebraska and this is not uncommon. Our frost line is May 10!!! Sometimes that snow
    acts like a blanket to cover your plants and trees. If the cold
    doesn’t last txt long. Where are you from? Are you from the south? Good luck with everything.

      Hi Patricia! Hanging in for sure! Our last frost is mid-May, so we have many nights ahead of us! We’re in Northern New Mexico in the high desert…about 5500 feet in elevation. Such an interesting climate to live and try to grow in!
