You may remember reading a post on December 4 about the St. Barbara's Day tradition of cutting fruit tree limbs and bringing them indoors so that on Christmas Day they would bloom. (I did cut some cherry limbs and brought them into the house to see if they really would bloom by Christmas.)
Then, there was the post on December 27 showing the limbs. Did they burst into bloom by Christmas? No.
Well, then I thought that perhaps they would burst into bloom by Old Christmas, January 6. Did they? No.
Here it is January 23, 2012. Have they bloomed yet?
At least it looks like there are finally some buds starting to form!
