Summer and Winter, Peaches and Pears

It's that time of year again when the winter frost and chilly nights breakway to mild nights, warm days, everything coated with a green powdery pollen, and the blossoming of new fruit. Mikki gets clobbered this time of year with alergies. The pollen this year is about as rough as we've seen it due to the very cold winter we experienced. I have noticed extremes in our weather... Last year we had 11inches of rain in 24 hours and then 11 weeks without a drop and temperatures in excess of 100 on many days. That was followed by one of the coldest winters I recall here in Texas. We actually went three or four days below freezing.... We don't construct stuff down here in Texas for those kinds of winters. Anyway, one benefit of the very cold winter is a flourishing Spring. The three year old peaches and pear trees we planted in the Winter of 08 are bursting with fruit this year. Take a look...
