Spring Blossom in the Orchard

Challenge #14 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Let us see the beauty of spring blossom in your fruit trees, such as peach, almond, cherry, apricot, plum, nectarine, trees; pear, apple or citrus trees. Macro shots welcome. Show us these flowers outside in their natural environment, not under studio lights. No roses, hibiscus, daisies, etc. No, you don't have to be in an orchard, just show us the blossoms from the fruit trees. Small creatures may be present, but should not dominate the picture. SIZE DOES MATTER: See Below.
