It was a gorgeous summery morning yesterday. Many of the trees in our forest garden were looking gorgeous. Also the sound of the birds was incredible. We could hear grasshopper, sedge & willow warblers and chiff-chaffs back from their foreign trips. The insects were enjoying the tree flowers. So I decided to take a few pictures to show you the beauty.

Please click on the picture to see a full size one. And please let me know what you think in the comments below.

  1. Nice to see the talets poking their heads up. I hope they do well for you.

  2. What a beautiful idea for a post. I may have to steal it wholesale ahem, take inspiration from it. Although I’m very poor at cropping and have the artistic skills of a Wellington boot, as you say there’s plenty of natural beauty around at the moment and I might get away with it.

    May I ask what the red apple blossom is, and also how old your flowering morellos are, have you had fruit from them before?

    (Deliberately not asking about the things called talet. I don’t need to know. And I’m not going to google them. Well, not today, at least.)

  3. Lovely photos Carl-I particularly liked the ones of the apple blossom and I’m so jealous that you have figs growing…yet again my Brown Turkey has failed to produce any or those wretched squirrels have beaten me to it…

  4. You weren’t joking,, you really were taking lots of pictures of tree flowers,, and very lovely they are too!

    • Hi Tamsin, a man of my word and it was lovely to speak with you. Thanks for the kind words 🙂
