The Candycots are beginning to wake from their winter slumber.

At about 1% bloom the Anya blooms are mostly on the basal portions of the branches while the Yuliya blossoms are mostly towards the terminals.

It could be that we do not have adequate chilling hours during our winters for the bloom to be compact.  A staggered bloom is not necessarily a bad thing.  By the time the fruit is maturing, the differences of bloom timing will be diluted.  Also, the fruit requires two or three picking passes anyway.
