Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

Sure Signs of Spring

So I was outside this evening shortly before sunset, and I noticed my almond and peach trees were just glowing beautifully with fresh blossoms.  So I grabbed my camera and my 105mm macro lens for some shots…

I have 2 peach trees.  One provides LOADS of smaller, white fleshed peaches, and the other provides fewer, larger yellow fleshed ones.  These are all from the white-flesh tree…

Then I saw this guy buzzing around my almond tree…

He knew he was further than I wanted him to be, so he flew down to the peach tree for a closer look…

That’s it.  Just some sure signs of spring from my front yard.  Thanks for looking!

  2. Nice ones. The HBM is a bonus! Nothing is blooming in New England, but in a month that will change.
