and itty bitty critters.

I’m overwhelmed by the beauty that spring continues to greet me with each day. The birds are chirping. The bees are buzzing. The flowers are bursting with beauty. And the orchards are slowly coming to life.

Row upon row of blossoming fruit trees line the hillsides.

And dandelions lie in wait beneath blossom-laden fruit trees; nature’s welcome mat.

    oh my word - dreamy is the word! I just love these! There's just no place like the North West!!! We'll get our annual trip to Oregon in late June...I've never been in the spring - might have to find an excuse to change that! It's very inspiring to me the way you focus in your photos - really draws us in!

    what a great idea to head to an orchard! I was waiting for the trees in my yard to bloom for some photos. Then naturally it started to rain yesterday and low and behold - blooming trees! Darn it if isn't raining today too!

    Wow. I love, love, love these - truly beautiful! We don't have a lot of Spring blooms here and none in white. An idea has popped into my head about what I could do for the white prompt. I completely ran out of time for last week - as it's been a bit crazy here but I'll try my best to keep up this week... Hope to link up soon. :) Have a great weekend.
