Wood Orchard owner Steve Wood is encouraged by the sight of pink and white flowers on his trees throughout the county. Now is the time many cherry trees are in full bloom with blossoms with apple trees close on their tail. While motorists can enjoy the blossoms from the road, orchard owners like Wood can get a peek at how good the crop can be by taking a closer look at the flowers.
Despite battling a cold snap in April, Wood says the big, full blossoms are a good thing.
The cherry blossoms may stick around for the next week or two before they eventually fall off before the trees bear fruit in July.
