    WE have had fruit blossoms frozen before, twice in the last 7 years!!! Funny, though, MY Montmorency cherries haven't been affected, but I think they come out later.
    Say, does ANYbody every harvest those cherries?!? :hu

    I thought that all of mine were dead last year, and then my DH noticed in August that I had peaches up high. Start looking at the tallest branches later this year. You may JUST have a few. The 8 I got in 2016 were picture perfect!

    ducks, I just assumed the Washington cherry trees were ornamental only, that any cherries produced would be tiny. Maybe bird food.

    I've been to Arlington when the cherry trees were in bloom....it's a stunningly beautiful sight!

    Ducks, I'll keep that in mind about the blossoms....could be if there is any fruit to be had they will be bigger for being the only ones on the tree.
