William's Blog...with a smile!


Yes, I can be the weatherman...

A few days ago I wrote about our flowering crab trees were just blooming.

I also wrote that it would rain in the next day or so...it always did.

Well, sure enough...It has rained for two days.

Petals are falling all over the place.

I would show a photo but it is to sad to see. (IMHO)

It can be heart breaking to experience rains when certain fruit trees are in bloom.  Here in my part of California, we worried about the cherries when it rained last week.  Cherries don't do well when it happens.

I was just thinking today how cool it was to see all the petals on the trees and on the ground.

Good morning William.  Just another way Mother Nature has let us see her in all her beauty and then just to take it away

I think you may have a future in weather forecasting if you ever want to retire from real estate.

Good morning William. I like your honesty and I am sorry about the tree giving it leaves up.

Well, if you get tired of your day job, at least you have a career to fall back on, right?

Bill, spring in Minnesota is so predicable and yet so unpredictable

Posted by Vern Eaton, Realtor 651-674-7449 about 4 years ago


Sad but true the spring can knock off the blooms Flowers and trees in a heart beat.

Good luck and success.

We had another stormy front last night William Feela and the wind was blowing branches out of trees...

Sorry to hear of the fate of this beautiful tree's petals, but the rain will help in other ways.
