quite the opposite . we had a very wet late spring early summer and the winter was a lot warmer than the 2 before it. i just talked to my neighbor who also has a lot of berry bushes and fruit trees also and he's noticed they are lacking at his place also. we aren't near any cities or even big towns so i can't blame it on pollution. i should be looking at a huge crop of elderberries by next month but all the flowers are falling with no little green berry starting to grow! i sat in front of those bushes for a half hr. on a nice calm sunny day and i didn't see one bee or butterfly land on those huge flower clusters! just the sweet smell should bring in at least a few! its very disturbing!
