Bloomin' Idiots!

Although the calendar date for spring is a month away, I must report that the signs of spring are in FULL bloom here in northern Louisiana. While driving out to pick up a friend, I observed the Jonquils are in full bloom and so are the crab apple trees. This is still actually too early, at least for the apple trees. Here in north Louisiana, we usually experience one more cold snap that will denude the trees of their blooms. This is good in one respect: The crab apples won't be leaving a big mess for us to clean up in the fall. The bad news is: If the crab apples are blooming, what other fruiting crops are already blooming as well? Bloomin' idiots!
