Spring Blossom -photos by David J. Turan

In sixteen years of gardening in Delaware County I have never seen such amazing blossom. David Turan came by and took a few photos of the trees in bloom. I hardly recognize my own garden! So nice to have a pair of fresh eyes to capture this glorious time of year- thanks David.

On a more serious note, I haven’t seen any bees on the blossoms, just one lone hummingbird doing all the pollinating. Usually, my wife and I would lie under the canopy of blossom and hear the intense buzzing sound of working bees. I wonder if we will even have apples this year. So sad.

    WOW!

    No word from Margaret – any suggestions of where you and Michael might meet on June 2 – if he doesn’t stop off to help MR he will leave Tenafly about 8 AM – should be in Albany area around 10.

  2. Beautiful—I’ve been prevented from coming up for a couple of weeks, and missed most of the show. I had heard it was an amazing blossom year, but hadn’t heard of the dearth of bees; we had so hoped for a good apple year.

  3. All the bees are up here in Vermont – the buzz amoung the apple trees is deafening! So, don’t despair. These are wonderful pictures – Totem Farm is a theatrical setting.
