There is so much to stir our senses during this time of renewal but there is little to compare with the scent that awakens in the orchards in Spring...

The lingering fragrance that erupts from the lacey edged  blossoms evokes the imagination...

It lures the bees, hither and fro as the trees begin buzzing with activity...

I am most grateful to experience this wonderful time each year and anticipate the fruit that shall result from such loveliness...


  1. It is truly the most beautiful time of year and you live in one of the prettiest places in the country!

  2. Oh so beautiful, to me this is truly the start of Spring and your pictures lift my heart just to look at them, the last one is sugar sweet they are too cute xx
    Hugs Lynn xxxx

  4. Your blossoms are looking lovely. Those little squirrels are so cute!! Awwwww!

  5. Beautiful, beautiful blossom :) And that last image is just too cute!

  6. Apple blossom time is the loveliest time. We have only got violets so far (they just bloomed the other day), but the flowering trees all have a sort of pregnant hush that speaks of beauty ready to burst forth.

    What lovely images, and adorable little faces in the last photo. :)

  7. Such beautiful apple blossom; one of the loveliest sights possible! Love the cute little squirrels. Ros

  8. Oh Susan...such lovely blooms! With a wee bit of love from the honeybees, a bit of rain, and the warm smiles of sunbeams, your harvest shall be most plentiful. Wishing you much joy as you wander you magical orchard.
    Sending fond wishes your way...
