I’ve been saying all spring that we are about a month ahead of where we usually are with our trees this year.  Here’s one more blossom that’s early.

My strawberry plants are covered in blooms.  They’re supposed to give me fruit in June.  I’m barley getting them uncovered by this time.

After the freezes we had earlier, I wasn’t sure if I’d have any fruit from my fruit trees.  Well, the cherry tree is covered in tiny fruit.

There are little peaches.

My plum has fruit, but I don’t think there’s as many as there would have been without the freeze.

I’m still waiting to see if the apples will get fruit.

Finally, my big oak trees are getting their leaves.

They are so big and old, and I’m afraid that many of the ones in the pasture are in bad shape from years of animals rubbing against them.

This one right by my house was heavily damaged in storms last summer.

These trees are also by my house.  I love the shade they provide, but you can see that one was also hit by lightening many years ago.  I had the entire side of the tree removed to prevent it from splitting further.

It seems to have been a successful way to save it.  I really think I need to start some new big shade trees.
