Spring Blossoms and a Surprise

17 Apr

I was worried about all my fruit trees with last week’s freeze warnings, but I’m more optimistic now.  The blossoms are just starting to open on the fruit trees. Here’s the cherry tree.

I actually have some peach blossoms this year, so I hope I get fruit from it again.  It’s been a couple of years.

The plum blossoms are a bit behind the other two.

Remember my poor apple tree that has been falling down for the last several years and the goats finally stripped the bark this spring.

Guess what!  It’s got leaves!

Not only does it have leaves, but it also has blossoms.

I don’t know how!

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The coming week’s items are at the top of my sidebar.

Today, I’m sharing with Macro Monday, I Heart Macro, Monday Mellow Yellows, and The Good. The Random. The Fun.

      The spring fruit tree blossoms are some of the prettiest and sweetest smelling!

    Whee! What a nice surprise! Would it be possible to fence around the apple tree to keep the goats away from it till after it bears it’s fruit? One more year of jelly, juice, applesauce, etc? It does sound tempting, doesn’t it!

      I’m more worried about keeping them away from the other fruit trees. I plan on putting a fence up as soon as I can.

    Very pretty blooms. We had a crab apple tree that was dying but would still get leaves. last year a storm finally did it in.

      Such a shame. They are pretty trees. I will really miss my apples on this one.

      I’ve seen your rain. We’d be happy for a bit of that.

    Pretty blossoms. That apple tree isn’t going down without a fight!

    • Teresa April 18, 2016 at 6:39 am #

      It is one amazing tree!

      It certainly has a strong spirit.

    We have a tree kind of like this in our meadow too. I have no idea how it lives, but it does! Maybe you’ll even get some fruit! Yay!

    • Teresa April 18, 2016 at 6:40 am #

      I have several of them in pasture too that seem to defy death. Nature is amazing!

    Hello, I love the pretty blossoms. Gorgeous trees. Wow, the apple tree is hanging on. That is great. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

      I don’t know how, but it is surviving!

    Such gorgeous blooms!!

  10. Andrea April 18, 2016 at 10:32 am #

    How wonderful to see those blossoms! I worry so much when frost threatens to ruin the blossom stage! I cannot imagine how that apple tree has any life left in it. Incredible!

    • Teresa April 19, 2016 at 6:37 am #

      I was totally surprised when I saw it was getting leaves.

    Magnificent blossoms and buds Teresa! Thanks so much for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro ♥

    That is a brave little apple tree overcoming all those odds; looks like the ‘attention’ from your goats was actually good for it somehow. Your spring blossoms are so beautiful and I’m so glad they weren’t damaged by the late winter visit. Also glad you shared the pictures — because I never get to see these beautiful blossoms here in Florida.

    • Teresa April 19, 2016 at 9:19 pm #

      I can’t imagine not seeing all the beautiful spring blossoms. Of course, my allergies could like that.

  13. Margaret Birding For Pleasure April 19, 2016 at 11:26 am #

    So glad your beautiful blossoms did not get frosted.

    • Teresa April 19, 2016 at 9:20 pm #

      Me too! Now we can hope for fruit!

    Oh, I love spring blooms!

    • Teresa April 20, 2016 at 8:00 am #

      They are the best!

  15. Gemma Wiseman April 24, 2016 at 3:23 pm #

    Beautiful detail of these pretty blossoms. They look happy in spring light.

    • Teresa April 24, 2016 at 3:28 pm #

      Thanks, Gemma. They like our warm weather much better than the freeze warnings from the previous week.

    Fruit tree blossoms are gorgeous, but they don’t last very long.

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 1:05 pm #

      Wouldn’t it be nice if they could last all spring!
