The Orchard Blossoms

A few weeks ago I visited Frecon Orchard - there was barely a sign of a bud on the trees. Last weekend I returned to find a bevy of blossoms - the promise of summer's finest fruits. These beautiful pink blossoms will produce luscious peaches.

Peach blossoms!

The white blossoms - cherries, plums and plumcots. What is a plumcot - a cross between a plum and an apricot.

Cherries, plums and plumcot blossoms.

Its exciting to watch the progress of the orchard - to see the fruit mature. Before you know it - ladders like these will be perched throughout the orchard on a hot summer day with pickers harvesting the bounty. Later that week, the kind folks from Frecon Orchards will bring those fruits to the farmers market for your enjoyment. Can't wait!
