|Small orchard of fruit trees, image from southernliving.com|
This is a picture we found once upon a time. It's nothing special as far as flowering trees, but what kind of trees they are is what inspired us; it's a small orchard with a variety of fruit trees growing. When we thought about getting some land, we both said we wanted fruit trees and this picture is what made us want something like that.
Now of course, we ended up having more space to spread out and so our trees are scattered around. We didn't get one grouping like this but rather, we have small groupings (and more to come) scattered close to the house.
Either way, fruit trees rule! Now it's just a matter of waiting...care and time are what we have to manage now...caring for the trees and then just waiting for them to bear fruit someday.
