Beautiful May

Here is a road I walk every day. This photo is from yesterday, but this morning, when I passed this way, an oriole flew into an apple tree (not visible in this picture) and seemed to be sniffing the blossoms. Maybe it was sipping nectar. Maybe it was nibbling the petals. Maybe it was listening to whispered secrets--I don't know.

These are not the apple blossoms that the oriole was getting intimate with, but these are apple blossoms I especially love, because they're on a tree I grew from a seed.

May is so beautiful. The third photo is so inviting!

I love this time of year so much.

Around this time last year, we sat in the grass on that green road and you let me talk about some things I was really unhappy about. I'm in a much better place today, but also seeing the beautiful green road makes me remember how gentle you were with me that day.

I remember very well! On that same day, I discovered that there was a grass that, if you chewed on it, tasted the way hay smells--sweet and springtimey. During autumn and winter, I forgot about that grass, and I only just remembered it yesterday, when I saw it again.

I'm very glad you're in a better place now.

*wraps my soul in this beauty*

You look good wrapped in May :-)

Oh, how lovely. The third photo reminds me of a park we often walk in. I love the subtle tapestry of trees in various stages of flowering and just starting to leaf out.

And it's wonderful that you have a tree you grew from seed.

I love all the different shades too--restful for the eyes.

Beautyful bloosoms. I have special troubles with apple blossoms these days...:)
May. 13th, 2015 12:14 pm (UTC)
What sort of trouble? Too much love? Or is it allergies?

The orchards here are in full bloom now and we have a LOT of orchards! :o)
May. 13th, 2015 12:14 pm (UTC)
Must be very fragrant!

I should have not looked at these pictures from office ! Now I want to go outside!
May. 13th, 2015 12:15 pm (UTC)
What stage is springtime at for you now?
May. 13th, 2015 08:34 am (UTC)
It's funny to think of all those trees being single seeds once... We saw black-naped orioles when we were in Kuala Lumpur and they were beautiful birds with vivid yellow feathers - are yours like that?
May. 13th, 2015 10:29 am (UTC)
Instead of vivid yellow, imagine tangerine orange!

Lovely! I saw an oriole in an apple tree last spring, in New York.

I think you've said and I've forgot, but what are the apples from your seed-tree like?
May. 13th, 2015 12:29 pm (UTC)
They're nice! Not spectacular, but with a pleasant flavor.

A spirit-lifting time of year.

Beautiful indeed! As a megacity-dweller, these images make my day (in an envious sort of way, LOL).
May. 13th, 2015 01:44 pm (UTC)
I'm happy to provide them! Hope you get some time away from the city now and then (just like sometimes I like time *in* a city--all the people, the stimulation).

Beautiful photos! I love the first one especially: it seems so full of possibilities.

I really like the wooden utility poles--they seem happy in the landscape (not always true for utility poles!)

So much green!!! I love it! This time of year, much of our green has already turned brown. :(

If you plant an apple tree from a seed (which I think is totally wonderful), does it need another apple tree to cross-pollinate in order to have fruit? What kind of apple tree is it?

You live around so much beauty.
May. 13th, 2015 02:11 pm (UTC)
I believe it does need another apple tree, but there are so many apple trees around that that's not a problem.

I can't recall what kind of apple I planted the seed from! Maybe a Northern Spy, as I love those sorts of apples, and those trees produce fruit only every other year, a pattern this one seems to be following.
