    flower in bloom on peach tree
    I’ve had the crown of my potted peach tree covered over for the winter to prevent leaf curl and the additional protection means that it is already in flower. I’m hoping that the intermittent sunshine will bring the pollinators out, so I’m uncovering it during the day, but in case they are still hunkered down, I’m also hand pollinating the flowers with a soft brush.
