This Sunburst Cherry is flowering! The buds look great, too. Just way too early.
The poor things are pretty confused - and I am not surprised, as the seasons have been rather strange/extreme.

My apple trees are flowering too and some of my plums have never ripened - just stayed hard and 1/2 red. It is a worrying trend if even the plants don't know what's going on. I have more faith in nature than I have in politicians and their stupid rules that try to stop me watering my vegetables!
ps finally bottled and tried the limoncello last night - soooo good and we made 3 bottles for $24 total!!I will put a photo on the blog when I remember to photograph them in the daylight!

Hmmm....seems to be a trend. My neighbour has a flowering plum? or was it apricot? Can't remember. Poor trees. Let's hope they'll be right come spring.
Glad to hear your limoncello is a success. I'm already looking forward to piccies on your blog!
