I Have a Peach Tree, Bought at Lowes, Approx. 3 Years Old.
It is covered with blossoms that are beginning to produce tiny fruit. However, it does not have a single leaf on it! What is wrong with it?

Have you had a very wet spring or has the soil where the peach tree is planted been continually wet this year?
Typically this kind of behavior is a sign of stress in a tree. With peaches, that stress is most commonly caused by root rot due to over wet conditions.
Unfortunately, by the time this problem is caught in a peach tree with signs like this, the tree is too compromised to recover. Improving drainage will help and then when summer comes, you will need to provide extra water to the tree to help it make up for the lost root system. A phosphorous rich fertilizer will also help the tree regrow its roots.
