Apple Blossoms

May 2, 2012

“The blooming orchards are the glory of May . . . ”
— John Burroughs, Leaf and Tendril

Apple blossoms

“May is a green as no other,
May is much sun through small leaves,
May is soft earth,
And apple-blossoms,
And windows open to a South wind.”
— Amy Lowell, “Lilacs”

Blossom by blossom, the spring progresses.  We are now seeing apple trees in flower.

Apple blossoms on the tree where I find windfalls.

    I love the watercolor-I have an original watercolor of apple blossoms done by my neighbor Merel hanging in my bedroom. It is one of my favorite pictures-would love a small one of yours to hang with it.
