This Week in the Orchards

The sweet cherries are in full bloom in most of the orchards. The tarts are just getting started. Apples are showing a bit of color but it will be a few more days before they get going.

A little peek at Lake Michigan beyond the rolling hills of Leelanau's Apple Orchards.

A little bit of apple blossom pink.

A wonderful show in the sweet cherry orchards this year. We should have tons of cherries!

Nectarines are one my favorites.

Tart cherry blossoms popping like popcorn everywhere. Monday should be beautiful.

It seemed so long ago the cherries were blooming here. I think in the next week or tow tart cherries will be ready to pick. Lovely photos so fresh and inviting.
