    Not cherry Ray as they are white. Looks like a peach but may be one of the other fruits.

    cherry or peach
    I cut down my cherry tree (red skin / yellow fruit)
    It had darker pink blossoms than the peach.
    The cherry never had blossoms on the end of a branch.

    The cherry tended to have clusters of blossoms while the paeches tended to have a long string of blossoms along the new growth from last year.

    Peach had blossoms before leaves popped and the cherry leaves would start unfurling while blooming.


    One of my peach trees is already just about done blooming and the new one just popped.

    Cool I hope it's a peach tree! Probably sprouted up from something tossed in the compost pile. Look forward to learning what it is :)

    Weird. Our peach trees blossomed a month ago. Strawberries are blossoming now and apple blossoms keep coming on.

    And meanwhile just a few miles north . . . our fruit trees are just starting to bud out now . . . daffodils are now out . . . grass is starting to green up.

    Of course it could be worse . . . my sister (in Wasilla, Alaska) celebrated her birthday on Saturday by riding her snowmobile on some local trails.
