Early Spring in the Orchard - Natural Dyer's Play Ground

Last Saturday was the beginning of Orchard trimming, an important ritual that keeps the trees healthy. With 38+ fruit trees, it takes weeks to complete the trimming, while racing against the unfolding Spring.

This time, I'm on pace, except, as you will see, my peach trees are about to flower. Have a close look at how different they are - in color, in texture and in their Natural Dyes (?!?). Next weekend, I'll be sure to gather off other fruit trees & compare them, too. BTW - the apple is Red Delicious, the Pears are D'Anjou, but I'm not sure about the Peaches. So Cool! Have a look at the video, below.
