[NAFEX] Freeze damage- off topic genus

Here in Massachusetts most stuff is still dormant, or nearly dormant,  
so we've escaped the worst of it.  But I notice that my apricot tree  
is at pink tip, (or pink round puff, as the case may be) and wonder  
if that means this year's crop is doomed.

I was planning to do my apple grafting this weekend, but I think I  
may have to wait another week or two.

Good luck,

eastern Mass., zone 6
