The sight of the blossom on the trees is surely the most beautiful mass events of the year. Most famous is the Pink Cherry blossom's that emerge and show that spring is upon us and nothing will stop it. Not even snow and cold. Blossom is the term to describe the flowers on stone fruit trees, Cherry and peach generally, also orange, almond and apple can be counted too, the later are however white. When the wind blows across the trees hundreds of petals are blown off and give us a shower of pink or white petals all around.
These trees provide a rich supply of food for bees and many other insects so if you are going to have a tree in your garden, choose one of these and every year you will be richly rewarded with a bloom of colour even though short lived, that is vibrant and beautiful and of great help to insects.

My name is Jonathan and I enjoy working in my garden in my spare time. I am no professional, just an amateur. My second love is photography, shooting the flowers in my garden and of course sharing them with people who share my passions.
