Can one see a visible difference between the dormant PT flower buds and leaf buds in the fall? 
Thanks!

Yes, they are distinctly more plump. These buds develop into the following April/May flowers. The June bloom, however, originates from newly developed flower buds blooming almost a year prematurely.  Unfortunately,during Winter, birds will feed on these buds when more desirable food is unavailable.
