Weird

I just noticed some blossom on my flowering cherry...at the END of summer!  It flowers at the end of September, this must be a survival mechanism caused by the extreme heat.

Funny you should say that. I noticed blossoms on the apple tree 3 doors down. If the fruit trees are flowering all skew wiff I am concerned. No time for those fruit to ripen of course before the frost and the cold and if they begin all trying to flower now we may end up with some serious fruit shortages. :( My blueberries upped and died after they grew green leaves in early spring, autumn came in December and they turned their leaves red and then summer arrived. I lost all my blueberries that way. :(

It is worrying, the weather seems to have been either up or down, not very even at all, no wonder the plants are confused. Will you try again with your blueberries?
