This is not unusual if it is ume, which are in full bloom in January (depth of winter) in the Bay area, but bud and bloom much later if they are kept in the cold and dark (I don't recommend it.)

Depth of winter…. Bay area… isn’t that an oxymoron?

I think Victrinia has a point.  I thought the depth of winter in the Bay Area was June!   Coooooold.

I've had an ume for just a little while now, so I'm looking forward to learning/experiencing more about them.  I'm looking forward to some more pictures when the sun shines on Oz again.

Depth of winter, of course was a not to our southern hemispherical members, and slightly tongue in cheek. My own ume has not bloomed yet, and always opens buds quite late. We hope to change that soon.

I think you might have missed my own tounge in cheek... I was refering to the bizarre notion that the Bay area even has something that can constitute a winter...  ;D

My first Intensive was in January, and I had to buy a T-shirt because all my stuff was too hot to work in. Later that year, in June, I went back and had to buy a sweatshirt because I didn't have anything heavy enough to work in. It's an unusual place.

Loopie it should be more of a surprise that the tree went dormant than starting to bud so early.

My Plum trees are always the first to break into leaves in spring - I'm not surprised you see this with Apricot.
