Depressing weather

My apple trees were still in bloom, in spite of two nights at 27º.  I just heard on TV that 25º will kill apple blossoms.  I looked at my weather station.  It's 25º right now, and expected to keep falling until 7:00 a.m., still an hour and a half off.  My son gave me all of my apple trees, over a few years.  Very special Mother's Day gifts.  I got my first five apples last year, every one of them delicious.

It appears there will be no apples this year.

The Michigan fruit growers are unhappy.  There are pockets of slightly warmer weather, but they are getting hit hard.  Cherries may make it, but peaches are a done deal.  Another year . . .
