Blossom Time is one of my very favourite times of the year, when fruit trees and bushes are filled with the simple beauty of their un-fussy flowers and the promise of good, fruity things to come.
Here’s a quick gallery of some of the fruit blossom I’ve been thoroughly enjoying of late. (And is it just my imagination, or is the blossom particularly lush this year?)
Blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum)
Jostaberry (Ribes × nidigrolaria)
Yellow Currant (Ribes aureum)
White Currant (Ribes rubrum)
Redcurrant (Ribes rubrum)
Black Chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpia)
Crab Apple (Malus sylvestris ‘John Downie’)
Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum)
Apple (Malus domestica ‘Herefordshire Russet’)

What do chokeberries taste like?
The plant is only a couple of years old and has just reached flowering maturity, so hopefully I’ll find out later in the year.
