More Blossoms….Because We Can.

Early cherry blossom.

All sorts of new blossoms at the farm this week. Spring, it seems, keeps…um, springing. And we are quite happy about that. In just the last week cherries, pears, strawberries and apples all started to bloom. And the peaches, nectarines, figs, rosemary and blueberries came into full flower. Our potato plants are taking off, the mint is already trying to take over the world and wisteria is just starting. Citrus still sits ready on the tree (but not for much longer).The bees are back, doing their magic. Wildflowers start to cover the hills. Color and sound fills the soul. This never gets old. Never.

  1. Beautiful ….. envy !!! But there is hope for us too … Spring will be here this year too. Peach blossoms have I only seen in China and the apricot blossoms was every more beautiful … it was a whole valley of them and it was breathtaking .. and apricot in shades. Thank you so much for bring spring, hope and beauty to me.

  2. You have no idea how envious I am of your budding harvest! It’s times like these that I wish a had something bigger than an apartment and balcony. That, and the addition of green thumbs, as I’ve successfully killed every herb I’ve tried to cultivate on said balcony. I love the poetic beauty of growing something from scratch, watching it grow and finally, making the transition from garden to kitchen. But alas, so far this evades me!
