I know it is not the season, but my fruit trees (epicod, pair, cherry, peach) are all in full blossom (full of flower).
Please advise what is wrong and what need to be done.

It is most unusual for your fruit trees to flower in the fall but it does sometimes happen. Flowering is triggered by the weather and your trees obviously think it's springtime. There's not much you can do except to enjoy those beautiful blossoms and hope the bees get busy and pollinate those flowers. If they do, you'll have an early crop of fruit. If they don't you'll have an early but poor crop. Your trees will eventually get back on their usual flowering and fruiting schedule all on their own so there's nothing you need to do.
