    I lost my Moorpark Apricots to fluctuating temperatures, this year.  
Not uncommon here in Illinois.  My plums, peaches,

    sour cherries, pears, and apples seem to be blossoming out ok.


    I am surprised your apricots outlasted your peaches.  You must have 
a very late blooming apricot, as most of the

    apricots here are the first to flower out.
