A Bloomin' Good Time!

So there I was driving around, (actually Rick was driving), beautiful Leelanau County looking at all the blooms. At first I thought how nice, everything's blooming! At a glance they all look the same. But they're not! Look closer :)


From l to r: crab apple, tart apple for baking*, tart cherry, pear, tart cherry, sweet apple for eating*.


*I don't know the variety of these two but have used them for eating, making applesauce and baking :)


Yes, I have been known to run around the county picking the fruit from the trees in parks and public places...but never farms! Hey, I figure they're organic (not sprayed) and you can't beat the price!
