May 19 – Spring Sprung

We haven’t been in Central Oregon for the Spring blossoms in several years, so it is with great pleasure I post these pictures of the flowers abounding here. If only the scents could be included!

 

The squaw currant blossoms are already fading. The bright red berries can be harvested in fall for a tart jelly.

Bitterbrush blooms are spicy smelling and give a distinct Central Oregon ambiance!

The lone apple tree is covered with blossoms, maybe a good apple harvest for the deer!

We found that we have a lilac bush, it's hiding behind the wood shed!
