Orchards in Bloom

I almost missed them.

The rows of apple, peach and pear trees covered in delicate white and pink blossoms. A brilliant display of Spring. A blanket of petals over the countryside.

I decided to head down the road, to our local orchards, and spend a few minutes walking through the trees.

A light Sring shower had left the grass damp and the petals dripping the last of the evening rain.

I was so happy I didn't miss them alltogether.

I even cut a few budding Lilacs. I'm looking forward to them opening, and their sweet fragrance filling the house.


  1. Beautiful pictures! I love spring and the beauty of new blooms. I have lilacs in a vase too and they smell amazing.
    Have a great day!
