The Orchards in Bloom


One of the things I will greatly miss about our current home is the abundance of orchards surrounding our town. With so many farms, an open market stand is only ever a minute away.

When the first of the sweet strawberries are in season, we head to a farm in town to pick our own. And when I get a craving for a juicy summer peach, I just hop in the car to the stand down the road.

But there's also that fleeting time of year when all of the orchards are a sea of blossoms. Row after row of fragrant apple blossoms and delicate pink peach blossoms; a sight that comes as quickly as it goes.


This evening, while the sun set, and before they disappeared, I took a walk through the orchards and enjoyed the sweet scent of the apple blossoms.

    Beautiful photography of a beautiful spot! How far away will you be from all the farms when y'all move?

    1. Only half an hour. But it's so lovely having everything down the road right now.
