It's a gorgeous day here in South Texas and while messing around in my garden this Giant Swallowtail flew in and enjoyed my Texas Mountain Laurel. Spring is definitely springing but hasn't sprung. It's supposed to frost/freeze Sunday and Monday just in time to wipe out my peach crop this year as most of my peach trees are in full bloom.

Lovely Butterfly Chuck :)

We've got the same problem, working out in a T Shirt for 2 days in February is unheard of in the UK.

Still got plenty of time for frost damage yet :eek:

We have had so much spring like weather that it convinced many of our local native trees and shrubs that it is spring and they are acting accordingly. I guess I will have to get some later maturing low chill hour peaches.

Have you got enough fleece to cover the blossoms when the frost comes?

Not even close to enough. My trees are getting old and are large. I have to get a ladder to pick them.
