Peach Blossoms

Blossoms are bursting out all over. The peach tree on the back porch is in bloom. We grow our peach tree under the back porch roof to keep the rain water off it in winter. This prevents the peach leaf curl disease from getting a chance to take hold. Otherwise in this climate peaches often succumb to this malady.
Throughout the gardens the daffodils, grape hyacinths, early Greigii tulips, the forsythia and flowering currant are all in bloom in spite of the fact that it is going to freeze tonight.
