Emerging Apricot Blossom and the Moon





These four photos were all taken on March 3rd 2012 and are of the same tree that I shared yesterday, just less than two weeks later in full bloom.

  3. So lovely! We have to wait at least another month to see fruit trees in bloom here. But Spring is early this year...... so maybe earlier. Haven't seen apricots here, but peaches in bloom in some sheltered gardens.

  6. My neighbour has an apricot tree, a few years ago it produced so many apricots that I made jam for all of us using my breadmaker!!

    It is such a pretty tree in bloom.
    Great shots!
    Thanks for dropping by and visiting.

  15. My favorite fruit but I am finding them more challenging in the wet climate of northern California than they were in the south.

  28. I used to climb a huge, old apricot tree when I was a boy. The ants were constantly at work up there, tending to... whatever it is ants tend to. These photos take me back in a very happy way. A wonderful, beautiful series of photos.

  32. We don't have stone fruit trees in our region as it's too warm. I've not seen their buds before, rather pretty.

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
