A series of unseasonably warm days and nights in March inspired early blooms across Northern Michigan. But over the past two weeks, cold temperatures and repeated hard frosts slowed the budding and blooming down. . . so much so that the outside world feels a bit frozen in time. We wonder how many of the trees in our county's beautiful orchards will bear fruit this summer? We hope the warmth will return this week along with plenty of bees to visit all those flowers!
