The seventies-then-below-zero weather we had in late winter here killed the
flower buds on all six varieties of our peaches. Plums (myrobalan),
apricots, apples, and pears all seem to be flowering more or less normally,
but no idea yet about fruit set.

Anyone else on the list get clobbered? We also lost the flower buds on our
magnolia tree and forsythia bushes.
