Switchin' Flies

By Barney Nelson.
Don't be fooled by all those pink and white trees and little spurts of green here and there. It's not spring. It's not time to start planting stuff. The only reason stores start stocking all those tempting green garden plants this early is so they can sell twice or three times as many, depending on how many freezes are left. Don't be tempted! Wait! I was visiting friends the other day and admiring a big tree covered with white blossoms, bees humming. "What kind of tree is that?" I asked. They didn't know. It always froze, so they never saw any fruit. They weren't even sure it was a fruit tree. Sound familiar?
