Beautiful pictures Aisling, I love the blooms and blossoms of the fruit trees. And I love the picture of the White Birch bark. And the names of the fruit trees are almost poetic. Thanks for sharing your stroll. I can't complain about the rain we had today, we need it, always. The storms we can do without.

Thundercloud plum is a beautiful name, isn't it? I've sometimes been drawn to a plant because of it's cultivar name. Silly, but true. *grin*

I'm glad you had some rain, and hope we get ours overnight. The white lilacs my neighbor gave me the other day were planted far away from a convenient water source, so they could really use another soaking rain.

Thank you for your nice comment and for coming by to see my Sunday Stroll photos!

Isn't spring so refreshing?! I love it. Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Aisling said...

Mandie, Yes, particularly after a long cold winter! Except for one warm week, we are having a cool spring... nevertheless, things are greening up, flowers are blooming, and spirits are lifting!

Happy (belated) Mother's Day to you too! Thanks for visiting! :)

I think we are at just about the same stage. My plums have blossomed and the crabapples are very close. I especially liked the birch bark. Lovely photos. I keep meaning to join you on your "Sunday Stroll" but I keep forgetting until Monday. :<)
