The walnut tree has blossoms on it now, but not very many. It's never been very productive since it was trimmed a few years ago. The trimming might have been done badly. I don't know anything about proper tree trimming, but it seems wrong that the tree should now be producing half as many walnuts in proportion to the total walnut-bearing space available on it. Or maybe it's just getting old, and will soon die like the cherry tree did.
Better news is that the chance of rain Friday and Saturday has increased. Even one more good rainstorm would be so nice, before we have to face the arid summer. I hope May brings it. And tomorrow is the last day of unshowered April. April, you stink!
