Flowering Fruit Trees

My fruit tress are flowering Yay!! I'm so excited, especially because I didn't expect the apple tree to make it, (as it bends kind of bizarrely out from the ground). We never really anchored it well when we planted it. I'm hoping they start providing us with some apples and pears soon! These pics are inspiring to me.

My Flowering Apple Tree- the first year! photo by m.diaz My Flowering Pear tree photo by m. diaz The OhHI! prize I won!!

As for the package, thats the prize I won from indie biz OhHi! shop which by the way, is going retail read all about it here! Love her stuff,it's immaculate and SEW well done! Quirky and elegant at the same time! I'm thinking I might be stopping by her etsy shop more often!

Well, I'm off to the studio to get something new done.

I'm in the mood to draw. I'm also in the mood to work on a handmade Kokeshi inspired laptop bag for one of my darling students, Emi Boscamp, before she goes off to college. I almost have all my lines memorized...lets see what happens...stay tuned.

how pretty! those flowers are gorgeous. Actually, I have a crabapple tree in my front yard that recently bloomed, but I forgot to take pictures of it, and now the pretty flowers are gone.

this is awesome. I've always wanted a tree that gives fruit (I have a grape plant, but it's still just vines, and doesn't count as a tree yet). I once saw a pear liquor, in a narrow rimmed bottle with a whole pear in it. What you do is hang the bottles on the trees with the blossoms in the bottle so the fruit grows right in the bottle. I don't know if you have experience in brewing your own liquor, but if not it might be fun to try doing something with this :)

I misspelled tomato but only because I was typing too fast.
