Flowering and Blossoming Trees Edition: Festival of the Trees 35 Now Online at Orchards Forever

These days I spend more time in the forest and the garden than I do in my office. Fortunately, many other tree-lovers continue in the fine spirit of arborblogging, as featured each month at The Festival of the Trees.

This May, The Festival of the Trees 35 "Flowering and Blossoming Trees Edition" is hosted once again at Orchards Forever. Honoring the fruits and flowers of Beltane and the return of warm days in the northern hemisphere, our hostess Peg immerses us in the annual celebration of bud burst. She includes an image of a red flowering currant, compliments of the Brambleberries in the Rain blog. Thank you, blogging friends, for sharing one of my dearest, favorite plants in all her finery!

I join the celebration with today’s image of the emerging blossoms on my flowering cherry tree, planted in my garden some eight or nine years ago. All the trees are drinking up today’s luscious spring rain, compliments of the Pacific Northwest.

What’s that? You want MORE tree blogging? You’ve got it: Here are the past few months’ Festivals of the Trees.
