  What a Difference a Day Makes!

Well, OK, actually two days. These two pictures were taken about 48 hours apart so you can see that bloom progresses rapidly when the weather is warm. This is also a young orchard exhibiting "youthful vigor". It is a few days ahead of our older orchards.

Here are rows very close to the previous photo and of the same two varieties, Nonpareil (most blossoms) and Fritz. Nice day today, the bees were very active. I'm sure each of the few open blossoms was visited several times.
