All is well: Full bloom reached

Read it here. Full bloom has come. It happened Monday, sometime in the afternoon.

This may be confusing to those not familiar with our spring rituals, but each year the smart people at Washington State University Cooperative Extension track the development of buds and blossoms on local apple trees as weather warms from the icy depths of January to glorious April and May. The drama builds over weeks and months and then, when the zenith is reached, they declare “full bloom.” Climate watchers note that this year full bloom is six days ahead of the long-term average date, which is April 27.
