Wow! It's May 13th and the trees are really starting to wake up. Just noticed that my Siberian Pears are at the bud stage known as pink tip (meaning that they are very close to blooming). The pie cherries and plums are getting pretty close as well. Apples are still at green tip to tight cluster (meaning that we still have a week or two to go before they bloom). Things seemed so slow for so long this spring that I never thought it would come. The trees march forward in their progress into the season. Better get the sprayer ready! Things start to happen really fast this time of year.
