A Weekend at the Orchard

We just spent the most magnificent weekend at our orchard in the Berkshires.  Western Massachusetts is GORGEOUS- actually, right now, when all the fruit trees are blossoming, buds are opening everywhere, and I could hardly drag myself back to the city.

The mountains come alive in May.  Here's a weathervane I made to watch over the orchard.

Our apple trees are blossoming with bright pink flowers.

Pear trees have white blossoms.  When the wind blows, they flutter in the most flowery clouds.
