Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree, is Far Less Trippy and Far More Lazy

Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree, is far less trippy and far more lazy, than suspected.  I'm pretty sure the song is about a kid watching blossoms grow.

It is important to know the stages of tree blossoms.  At different stages of a blossom you will need to fertilize or prune.  You will note that one of the growth stages of a blossom is called popcorn . . . because it does look like popcorn.

The best simplification, with the most useful compilation of information I have found was done by Fairbanks University.
