Sign of Spring?

[click image to enlarge]

These National Park Rangers are pruning the fruit trees on the grounds of the Adams National Historic Park. The tree they are working on has a bad split in it from a lightning strike. There are cables holding it together until it dies a natural death.

They look like they are enjoying their work. Was it as mild there, yesterday, as it was here in Vermont?

I hope this is a sign of spring. I've been seeing a lot of this type of action around my home also.

Looks like a good ol'fashioned tree wrangling. What other way to get them to bloom so early in the year?
