Cherry Blossoms In Iowa

OK~ I'm so thankful that Spring arrived early, or thought I was. Now, for the next week or so we have frost and freeze warnings in our forecast. I was delighted to find this yesterday.....

Cherry Blossom
Yep,  our cherry tree began to blossom! Now I will wonder.....Will these buds survive a freeze?Mother Nature sure knows how to keep us guessing. The last couple of Iowa winters have been extremely brutal, with a lot of snow and cold. This past winter was very mild- therefore, we are paying the price. We have lots of wood ticks and the other report I'm reading.....The mice will be really, really bad next Fall!  Yikes......As you recall, this Mom has had way too many clashes with those furry creatures!

So---- for now, I'll kick back and pray that these flowers keep their color! When in all reality, I have no say in it- Dear Mother Nature has control over everything! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. I love blossoming fruit trees! We lived by an apple orchard when I was growing up and it was just glorious in the Springtime!


I always love feedback on my blog!
