The Blossoming Valley



The valley is in full blossom as the fruit trees stretch their arms after a long sleepy winter, smiling at the warming days of spring. It is one of the most special times of the year.

This orchard is very special to me as these trees are our friendly neighbors.


If one were to walk down this row, up the hill and through the trees...they would arrive at our house!


The rolling hills draped with these beautiful blossoming fruit trees provide us with a delicious landscape... from blossom to fruit.


Here's another orchard across the way, hugging this narrow country road.


This is one of my favorite barns in the valley, especially when it's surrounded by twinkling pear blossoms and the green grass of spring. I'll return here when the fruit is growing, and their scent is strong and sweet.

Trina, how gorgeous it is where you are!! It reminds me of my small home town, with rolling hills and trees everywhere. I miss that landscape. It is a gift to have all those trees for neighbours. There can be disadvantages of living out of town, but I think they are outweighed by beauty!! I didn't think that even 10 years ago - now different things (like peace and quiet, and birdsong!) matter!!

Lovely! xo Terri

Sarah said...

Beautiful images. We have blossoms here too, falling from the trees in the breeze like confetti. The garden is blanketed in fallen cherry blossoms...sooo pretty.

How beautiful. I've been really missing our old home in the Hudson Valley and this looks just like where we were

I'd love to have a driveway that looks like Photo #1. And that backlit tree against the gray barn photo is gorgeous!

A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm! This is a simply beautiful and inspiring post! There's nothing lovelier than seeing a old apple or pear tree in full bloom. And when the wind blows and the blossoms begin falling, it's just magical! Ciao, bella!

Absolutely gorgeous! The trees hugging the road would have me driving that way any chance I could...even if I was supposed to be heading in the opposite direction! :)
How wonderful to have such beauty so close at hand...
Happy Sunday Trina...

Living It At Home said...

What a special magical place. Reminds me of the scene in Anne Of Green Gables when she first arrives on Prince Edward Island. Have you seen it? Such a sweet movie, watched it several times.

Just beautiful and lucky you!

Trina, you live in the most beautiful place! What gorgeous blossom trees - here in Brisbane it's too warm to grow trees like this, so I'll have to be content with looking at your beautiful photos.
Have a great day,
