Spring in the Orchard


Despite all of the disruptions in our lives, nature is still keeping its usual rhythms. It’s the middle of May. Around here, that means the apple trees are blooming. Nature is not on a delay or in any way altered. It is simply moving on according to plan. In some ways, that’s refreshing because we can enjoy watching the natural world as it moves according to its plan.

The last picture you see shows beehives brought in to pollinate all of these apple blossoms. (We help nature out a bit.)

These images were made at Lull Farms in Hollis, NH. Their farm stand is definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area.

        You’re welcome! We just got home after capturing two waterfalls and the light green newly-leafed trees I was after. I hope your weekend is going well.

        This morning on the bike ride, they were fine as long as I was riding. I got off for a bit to take photos for tomorrow’s post and they got pretty thick despite a good dose of bug spray. How were your adventures today?

    If it wasn’t for nature… I’d be going nuts! Loved the tractor. Did I ever tell you we have a tractor in Pennsylvania. Sweet Man refurbished it and it’s a gorgeous fire engine red. It’s a Farmall.
    Loved the pictures!

    I miss visiting the farms. USA is too far for me to travel too and my nearest have been Australia and New Zealand. I miss see apple blossoms and picking wild blackberries for pie making and desserts.

        There is! It is simply fun, plucking strawberries in buckets or browsing in their little makeshift stall to buy their strawberry jams or toppings😊

    I love these images of spring, Chris! We are fully indoors this rainy Sunday so finding your pictures of spring was the perfect escape. Hope you’re doing well!

    Looks like a great place, Chris! And totally agree about nature and the reassurance we can take from it. A bit of normalcy amid the chaos right now.
