A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about an impending freeze and the threat on our peach tree, who is always fooled into blooming before the last frost. Well, I am here to report that all is well with it. In fact, the profussion of blossoms on it is a sight to behold. If we get half as many peaches from this tree, I'll be a happy camper.
This poor tree has suffered through several hurricanes, hail, tropical downpours, and it just keeps coming back. In 2004, the eye of two hurricanes passed over us. We lost several fruit trees that year, this was the sole survivor of our peach and plum orchard. What was left of it was basically a two foot stick...

The camelias look especially pretty this year. I think all the cold weather is causing them to bloom in more profusion.
