Blossom time went by quicker this season. Last weekend the cherries, plums & peaches were at their peak, but the sunny, hot & humid weather meant they did not last long. It was perfect weather for the bees to do their work though, and pollinate the blossoms – and they were out in force.

The plum trees were loaded with blooms – we’re optimistic for a great crop!

Cherry blossoms were also plentiful.

Already we can see the tiny cherries growing inside the blossom.

We have been unsure of what to expect from the peaches after the frigid winter. But overall they had more blossoms than we had expected.

Some varieties had enough blooms to promise a good crop.

And some had blossoms only at the tops of the trees, where the temperatures were a little warmer – just enough to make a difference.

All varieties of pears had an abundance of flowers.
