Peach Blossoms

The fruit trees someone planted in an empty lot around the corner from my place are in full bloom, covered in pinkish puffs. It’s raining as I type this so chances are all of those beautiful blooms are falling to the ground.

The fully blooming trees caught me by surprise as I walked by them on my way home from the community garden. I grew up in fruit tree country and am pretty sure those blooms aren’t typically out until May! I should go check on the crab apples and cherry trees in High Park or risk missing their yearly splash-out.

One thought on “Peach Blossoms

  1. Another lovely photo of the day. Thank you for this middle of the day pleasure. (It’s noon in my locale.) Although I admire big, fat, lush sakura, I think I prefer the more delicate fruit blossoms in discrete clusters along the branches, as in this photo. I like this lovely contrast of delicate petals against the rough bark.
