After a warm and dry winter, spring just continued in the same way. The backyard sweet cherry trees flowered a week or two early. Luckily there was only one day, just after the first blossoms appeared, that was cold and sleety. Since then the days have contiued to warm up and the pollinators are out in force. We should get a sweet cherry crop this year.
