It's finally springy around these parts! We forgot to prune the apricot tree in late winter like we should have. No matter - we'll prune it now by cutting off all the wild water sprouts and bringing them inside to enjoy!
As a child, I remember singing about "popcorn popping on the apricot tree" in the springtime. My children still sing the fun little song. Its true - the blossoms really do look like popcorn all over the tree. And now we have popcorn branches on the counter, where we will keep them until the blossoms fall and we have snow all over the place. Hmmm... spring turning backwards into winter? Odd.
