A Stroll Through The Orchard In Spring

"On both sides of the house was a big orchard, one of apple-trees and one of cherry-trees, also showered over with blossoms; and their grass was all sprinkled with dandelions." 

~L. M. Montgomery

Apple Blossom

I took some photos while walking around the orchard last weekend, and wanted to share them with you.

Our apple tree shown above, was planted about 2.5 years ago.

It is hard to see in this photo because of the netting, but this is a photo of our mulberry tree which is bearing fruit now.

We have just finished harvesting our last crop of lemons and the tree is already in flower again.

Our mandarin tree is covered in flower buds.....

....... and so is the lychee tree....

......and the mango trees.

It certainly is a lovely time of year.
