My little bit of this big World
My garden is confused too. Just hoping we dint get a first to kill the new growth.
When I taught science, I found out that trees always set their buds in the fall. If you look close at the bottom end of the stem, it forms around the bud. When the bud is mature enough, it outgrows the stem of the leaf and the leaf falls off.Our cherry tree, whose limbs touch our kitchen windows, is full of buds. I am always suprised that the squirrels don't eat the buds. I would think they would be sweet tasting?
