Another Prunus mume approaching full bloom

I hope they don't all flower out before the middle of March. I'm giving three walks to track the progress of spring and the first one is March 18. No matter how much winter is left there'll be any number of blooming plants by then. Some years that would be a peak period for the Flowering Apricots, but apparently not this year.

During the course of finalizing the announcements for the Spring Schedule, I noticed that the cost for the walk is $12.00. Hey, if you read this blog much you must have sensed that I have the potential to be obnoxiously arrogant.... But wow. I know I'm worth six dollars an hour. Hey, I'm a bargain at that price.

Beautiful shot....and you're right, $6/hr is too cheap ;-)

Very beautiful indeed. Maybe I should give Prunus mume cultivars a try in my parents' garden...
