Almond blossoms

Peach blossoms

Apple blossoms


  1. I'm so impressed by people who can identify plants, trees, and flowers. My mom was really into all that yet somehow I don't know how to identify anything. I just point and go "ooooo pretty!!!"

    My brother-in-law planted what is supposed to be an almond tree outside our driveway, so maybe at least I'll be able to recognize that!

  2. Mel-honestly, most of the trees look the same to me. Some of them are easier to identify than others-like the almond tree that still has a few shells here and there. I can identify the rest based actually seeing the fruit last year or I probably would be lost. There are still one or two mystery trees out there as they're still to young to have produced anything.

  3. I'm jealous. I am so tired of winter in Chicago.

    Hopefully the snow and cold has stopped.

  4. Peachy- Welcome to the blog! I know, you guys have had a really, really harsh winter. I guess the 2nd highest snow levels in recorded history? I hope that things thaw out soon!
    BTW-I love and miss Chicago!
