More Warm Weather

While much of the rest of the country has been pummelled repeatedly by historic winter storms and freezing  weather, we are still enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures here in the California desert.

Highs have been in the low 80's, which is about 10 degrees above normal for this time of year. It even crept up to near 90ยบ a couple of days ago.

Nectarine Blossoms

Our nectarine tree has been blooming for a couple of weeks, and is already starting to set fruit.

Peach Blossoms

The peach tree is about 2 weeks behind the nectarine. It is covered in blossoms and new green leaves.

Peach Blossom

The apricot tree is still snoozing. It is always the last of our 3 fruit trees to bloom.

"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit."
