They Call it a King Bloom…Huh.

Given that it’s mostly female, maybe “queen” would be better?

Apple Blossoms in Keremeos (12 hours before the snow)

Life is risk.

It is these first, strong, dominant blooms that commercial orchards kill off with thinning sprays (killing sprays, burning sprays, really). Here’s a couple queens, timed to open a day later, and maybe missing the frost.

Fingers crossed!
