Sunday Sunset

Just Peachy

 As soon as we heard the peach trees at the orchard were in bloom, we went there! Well, many were not blooming, but some were. Here are pics of on the way there.



And we finally arrive.









To let you see what it looks like when they are All in bloom, here are some of my photos from years ago.





Did you know that peach trees and almond trees are so closely related that they are almost the same tree?

"Peaches & almonds are almost the same tree, but produce different fruits. Peaches grow a sweet, fruity flesh around the pit, while almonds grow a thinner flesh around the pit, and it is not sweet."


Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.

A Grape Of Another Kind

 The Grape Hyacinths are all in bloom. Here are the ones around here. I don't know why, but in my head I picture fairies dancing around them!

Chickens, Crickets, Birds & Flowers

 Why am I showing you some of my chickens? Because I just learned that in the darkness of the eclipse, the chickens go to bed because they think it is time to roost!


 

Also, crickets start to chirp, flowers close up, birds stop singing, and spiders take their webs down and put them back up.


I snapped all the following pics from the T.V.


The Mayans correctly predicted all the eclipses up until 1991! And today, large groups of people gathered to get married at the moment of the eclipse! Some groups had 50!


Seems that they enter the ceremony as two people. Then when the sun emerges they are one.


This effect is called The Diamond Ring.

The Cherry Trees

 Here are the darker color cherry trees that are in bloom around town. 






These were on the golf course.







“I value my garden more for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs.”

–Joseph Addison

 

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky. We fell them down and turn them into paper, that we may record our emptiness.

Sunday Sunset

 In Order.





“It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments, and it was sunrises that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again.”

— A.J. Lawless
