Apricot flower

One of two apricot flowers open

There was the briefest window in the weather yesterday – just long enough to get the pink bud spraying done.

It’s always a compromise: too late for some trees, too early for others.

This apricot tree just got in under the bar – it had two flowers open; this was one of them.

The raindrops and the two tiny insects seem almost too much for the fragility of the petals.
