The warm weather swelled the buds, the winter moths got into them and then stayed there eating during the cold weather that followed. Some apple trees have shown no flowers at all, others only on one or two branches close together. The pears are leafed out, but no flowers and no evidence of immature fruit. Looking at past years' entries, they may have tried to flower while I was gone, and been frozen or left un-pollenated. The peach is beginning to leaf out, no flower buds evident yet. I will have sour cherries, mulberries and pawpaws (in that order), it appears.

The Horse Chestnut seedling my parents gave R & me 27 years ago has died. I hope I can find another at my parents' house, as not many exist in settings where their seeds can sprout and survive without being mowed.

The Civic's battery died while I was gone and subsequently didn't hold a charge. Not bad for a 2009 Honda replacement of the failed original battery. And K-Mart is still my best venue for replacing batteries, even with MA sales tax.
