Palisade, Colorado Welcomes Spring with Blooms

I received an email yesterday about Palisade, Colorado spring blooms. It brought back wonderful memories of visiting the area in 2008. Grand Junction and Palisade, Colorado have dramatic views of the Bookcliff Mountain Range, the Grand Mesa and Colorado National Monument. Palisade has a reputation of being a “fruit basket.” The area has not only vineyards but also orchards including apples, peaches, cherries and plums. Leif Johnson of the Palisade Chamber of Commerce, sent the email entitled “Fruit Blossom Showcase Nature’s Latest Display in Palisade, Colorado.” It details the expected fruit blossom dates that begin with apricots expected to be in full bloom March 23. The last date will be Red Delicious apples expected to bloom April 14. For more details you can visit the C.S.U. Research Center website at http://www.colostate.edu/programs/wcrc/pubs/research_outreach/budswcrcom.pdf.  While visiting Palisade and Grand Junction, check out some of the local wineries and enjoy your visit. If you are looking for lodging, consider Wine Country Inn in Palisade or Two Rivers Winery & Chateau in Grand Junction. Spring is almost here!

Cheers! Kathy
