Lack of blossom....

Several apple trees and a pear tree do not have any blossom this year. Last year we had amazing fruit crops off them. Could the cold weather have caused the problem or are the trees just "resting"?
Mine are only just starting to sprout although that's normal here. It also may be as hogweed suggests, and they will suddenly spring to life.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
As Fairy says, it could just be that they are having a year off. This "biennial bearing" can become a pattern but it would be unusual for all of your trees to do it but possible if they all cropped very heavily followed by poor weather (eg drought or little sun) as they wouldn't then be able to take in enough energy to form the new flower buds.
