Fickleness of Nature

Our cherry tree is in bloom right now. It is almost two weeks behind last year's bloom. I realize it has been a cold spring, but here's the kicker: our crab apple trees haven't bloomed at all yet! They bloomed April 5th last year! So, while the cherry tree is 2 weeks late, the crab apple trees are almost a month behind! What is with that? Maybe some of you horticulturists out there could tell me why they are blooming in a different order this year!

  1. I was channel surfing the other day and I saw a program that claimed plants sense day light and they stop hibernating when they sense so much day light.
