American Honey...

One of my favorite things when we moved to the country was the blooms on the fruit trees.
They're apricots, which are very fragile. They bloom early and frequently we get a heavy frost or freeze which prevents them from producing fruit.
I doubt we'll get fruit from them this year, but I did manage to snap some photos one day while they were blooming.













My favorites are the ones with the barn in the background.
The smell is so sweet and pretty!
Someone should make a body spray that smells like fruit blossoms.

If I'm not mistaken Bath & Body Works makes lotion, body wash and body spray that smells like spring fruit blossoms. I will see if I can find a link for you!

So pretty! It's like snow, but better... because it's not snow. There is a citrus tree that blossoms here in the spring and it's amaaaazing :) enjoy your garden!

The photos of the blossoms with the barn in the background are gorgeous. Doesn't it make you wonder who hoped for apricots and planted the tree, in Kansas?!

New follower. Love the ones with the barn in the background, too! Love the springtime blossoms. Sorry to hear you got busted by the frost.

So, so beautiful! You're right, someone should definitely make a fruit blossom body spray. ;)
