Early Blossoms


ok, yesterday morning the temperature was 50 degrees, by the afternoon/evening it was in the teens. Today it is 13 degrees. ah, global warming...it doesn't exist right? Except that icebergs the size of islands are vanishing along with it's furry inhabitants. What does this have to do with cherry blossoms? They are due to pop in April and yet here it is February and some are already peeking out...same as last November when it became unseasonably warm for a spell. I know there are flukes in climates and these things happen but this isn't the first year my tree has bloomed before it was supposed to. I truly wish it was just a fluke but, i don't know. My young garden maiden in the painting is perplexed as well.

Beautiful garden maiden. Poor trees getting confused. My mom's apricot tree has only ever gotten it right once--I guess it is at too high an elevation.
