We’ve been away from our home for so many springs, I didn’t know whether any of our flowers remained! And the spiders stuck around, too.

Orchards in Bloom

A friend mentioned that the orchards near his workplace were in full bloom, so we went out to see if the assessment was accurate. Yes and no. We saw some fully-blossoming orchards, and others that were a week or two away from blossoming. Still saw some lovely scenery, and it’s nice to see that grapes and wineries haven’t completely taken over the area that used to be completely covered in fruit orchards.

Cherries, or possibly plums.

I don’t know – you tell me. Cherries?
