Lucky you! Our first blooms are always from the Apricot trees. I’m also extremely lucky if I ever get any apricots as we usually have a late freeze.
The hope of Spring. It will be extra special this year.

Apricots from your own trees- wonderful. Do you have to cover with nets to stop the birds getting to them first?
Would have to be very big nets, apricot trees grow very tall…! Chickens, however, are the usual culprit for any lower branches 🙂
Oh yummy- apricot flavoured eggs 🙂
Spring is coming! Looking forward to more blossoms 🙂 Have a great Monday!
Thanks Lucy… just have to get my butt in gear now to finish the ‘winter’ chores (delayed due to inclement weather!)
