Apples in Bloom

The apples are blooming. The first time I saw apple orchards in bloom was in northern Japan, in Aomori. Rows and rows of blossoming apple trees covering the rolling hills up to the distant mountains. Every apple starts as a beautiful white flower, kissed by a bee.

The Rainier cherries are in full bloom. This year it’s warm when they are in bloom, and the air is full of bees. The trees should be full of plump cherries in a few months.
