EDM April 5, wild cherry branch and leaves
This is part of what remains of the wild cherry tree on the patio, partly pulled down by the hurricane, partly by the October snow storm. But, since it's a wild cherry, it takes more than a couple of storms to deter it, and it knows about weather, and doesn't put out blossoms before there are bees available to work on them. Right now it has leaves only, but last year once the blossoms got going, the place was mobbed with bees, a loud buzzing all the hours the sun was on the flowers. .
