Peach Blossoms


There is something incredibly satisfying about walking out to my very own peach orchard, breathing deeply the scented air, and watching my very own bees pollinate the blooms that will produce the sweetest, most luscious Redhaven peaches in July. We are busy here. In fact, we are so busy that this picture was taken a couple of weeks ago. We now have tiny little peaches where all those blooms are.

Spring goes quickly here.

Our trees are finally budding and I'm trilled to report that my twisted fig survived the winter!

Mmmm, I wonder what peach blossoms smell like? In a few weeks I could drive about 45 miles to find out ...

Every year, I wait with bated breath to hear that your bees are back, happily enjoying the wonderful land. If your ears are ringing next Tuesday, know that I will be sharing some of your experiences with bees with my nature science class, as we discuss bees and colony collapse disorder!
