Our sole surviving Japanese maple tree is fighting to come. Spots of leaves have appeared though most of the tree remains bare. We will wait and see what happens before we trim the tree again.
The peach tree is studded with buds but have yet to open compared with neighborhood blossoming trees. Not sure what to make of these buds. Time will tell if they will blossom or not. Last year, the buds were big but did not blossom. Instead, they all fell off. I think it’s because we gave it fertilizer before they blossomed. We’re holding off watering the peach tree with fertilizer until after the buds open or when they fall off.
