Sitting on the back deck, eating organic strawberries with Breyer’s vanilla bean ice cream, listening to the frogs chirping…a relaxing end to an unseasonably warm spring day in Southeast PA. The strawberries came from the local supermarket, but before we know it, we’ll have organic strawberries from our own backyard; I saw my first strawberry blossom today.

Blossoms by the hundreds…errr thousands, have sprung forth in our backyard. The warmth of spring has coaxed the hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils out of their winter hibernation. The fruit trees are sending forth their gorgeous blooms, attracting the bees for their pollination exercise. While they bring such beauty even from afar, a personal look at fruit tree blossoms is a feast for the eyes. Which do you like better…the apple (with the pink) or the pear (loose white petals)?

    Personally, I love apple flowers best. When you have multiple apple trees in bloom, the smell of all those flowers is just wonderful.

    I took the pic with a Fuji FinePix S700 digital. It’s a nice form factor, too.
