Blossoming Orchards

The orchards are in bloom. 


This pear orchard is adjacent to our property. I took these pictures last spring. It's one of my favorite orchards to visit not only because they are our neighbor, but because the trees are old and offer the most captivating canopy of blossoms, which eventually unfold into leaves, and then to fruit.

I can already smell summer.




























This is a favorite barn of mine. It's tucked away behind the pear trees just pleading to be explored.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

  9. I spent the afternoon footing about the orchards around our house as well. They are just so gorgeous. I always thought it would be lovely to get married between the rows of pear trees, under a canopy of blossoms. Or maybe even just a lovely afternoon tea.

  38. Gorgeous! We must take a drive to see the beautiful orchards. Last year we took my dear, little mother on the orchard train for her birthday. Things were running late and there were NO blooms at all that weekend. But we had a marvelous time anyway.

    Happy first Mother's Day with your precious little ones.
