Boys and Blooms

I had been wanting to catch the local orchard in full bloom for a few years now and this year I finally remembered.

Girls in pink flowing dresses would have been lovely- but I will take little boys
with mischievous grins any day. I Love my nephews. If you haven't noticed:)


If these photos seem effortless to you- looks can be deceiving. There were marshmallow peeps for bribing, and very, very silly songs sang to make these boys stand still, and look at the camera.

Hi, Faith and Charity, I hope you are having fun in Indiana without me.

Love to all,
Aunt Hope

    I just returned from a week in the north (Pennsylvania) and the blossoms are just gorgeous! I grew up surrounded by orchards so springtime was always so special for me, even now. It always called for picnics and photoshoots. :)
