In light of current events, I’m sharing what little bits I can. In this year’s race toward Spring, it was neck and neck between the Asian pear tree and the flat peach tree.
The peach tree took the checkered flag.

I’m a little worried that we down under are going into Winter just as this virus hits. Hopefully the double whammy doesn’t have an extra impact 😦

I hope not. You guys all deserve a break.
I saw the most gorgeous crab apple blossoms today.:-)
My crab is in third place. It leaves out then blooms. Very pretty though, and makes great jelly.
Beautiful blossoms. Thanks, Craig.

Those are the only ones so far. Ought to be beautiful in a few more days.
Always nice to see a post like this.
Next come the birds returning, right?
Winter was so mild this year they never left.

Mother nature. Who will win the race?
You’re welcome, Craig!
Beautiful! Our plum trees are in full bloom and are so lovely. We all need signs of Spring . . . especially now. 🦋
It’s the first one, but won’t be the last. Something tells me I have major thinning ahead of me again.
Gorgeous, Craig. We are going into winter here.
Fall is my favorite season. Hope you enjoy it.
Mmm… Imagining those yummy peaches you’re going to have.
Me, too. It will be a few months, but the tree usually produces more than I can eat.
Nice! The Dogwood trees are starting to bloom here.
I’ve seen a few around town, but it isn’t really going yet.
I’m always jealous of your peaches in the summer. At my old house, the birds always ate the fruit before we could pick it. (The trees are small ornamentals, so they don’t produce an abundant crop.) I’ll miss seeing them flower this year. Wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve already burst into bloom
Your photo is lovely. That first pop of color when everything else is brown is always a joy.
This tree produces so much, the birds can eat well and there’s still enough for me. If you plant some small ones, there is netting available to keep the birds away.
My grandmother used to net her blueberries. If these had been in my backyard, I would have. But they were in the front. Pretty landscaping, but I suspect the neighbors wouldn’t have been happy with me if I netted them. Maybe if I made them all cobbler…
Cobbler fixes many things.
I’m thinking we might have lost our Red Bud tree – I haven’t seen any blossoms yet, and the temps have been pretty mild.
That’s always sad. I lost an apricot tree a few years ago that was a real show stopper. CCRs require us to have a flowering tree in the front yard, and mine produced great apricots.
I don’t see much color at my house. Everything is either brown, or green. Nothing is blooming yet. Even if it did, I kill all plants and based on my black thumb, we have had to remove all the dead plants. So, I have no flowering plants.
I do remember my Grandma had a peach and an apple tree in her yard when I was growing up. They always produced well and were beautiful. She also had the best garden with blueberries and many veggies that we don’t plant.
Trees are fairly easy compared to flowerbeds. A little pruning and most of them stay pretty happy.
You say that, but my sister will tell you, I have no talent.
I killed a cactus. Just not for me. Now if I could have a live-in helper… ah, but I digress.
Thank you so much for sharing a BRIGHT moment in the natural cycle of things. I love flowering fruit trees and they don’t do particularly well in most of Florida. I love redbuds, too, and the same thing is true. SO nice to see yours, offering a sign of rebirth and hope, and reminding folks that life will go on! More, please???? 😀 ❤
I’m keeping my eyes open for other things. Maybe I’ll get back to business as usual when this madness pauses.
Hoping the same for all of us, and the sooner, the better! In the meantime, it’s nice to see something to remind us there is still beauty around, if we look for it. 🙂
I’m almost done pruning my cherry tree. Not today, though. It’s decided to snow.
Cherries are big, too. Not a good day for ladders.
And the winner is!!! Thanks for sharing, Craig!

Go, Peachy!!! 😀
Ha ha! Thanks.
WOW, that’s beautiful! As you may have read on FB, someone stole my single lemon, so I’m just bummed as far as fruit trees go. I had no idea peach trees had such beautiful blossoms!
I read about your lemon, and that sucks. The peach tree is beautiful when it blooms.
It sure is. And tasty, too. I’m so jealous.
