Spring at Rabbit & Raven Farms

The gloomy, cold weather in Reno today felt more like March than June. To cozy up, I thought I’d share some photos of warmer days on the dry farm this spring.
The color of this peach blossom was breathtaking:

Almond blossoms:

If you look closely, you can see the little almond baby (the white, fuzzy bit coming out of the blossom):

And walnuts!
pistachio babies
If the wildlife can exercise any self-contol, we might have a chance at a good harvest this year. Here’s to warmer days ahead!

    These are awesome Pics Shannon!
    Judging by the size of those blossoms, those peaches are going to be massive!
    I’m hoping for the same thing with our Peach trees.

      Thanks, Michelle! Haha! My perspective on the peach blossoms was a little dramatic (I love the zoom feature on my camera). The peaches, if we get any, will be tiny because rainfall is the only water the trees get. But they will be delicious. Good luck with yours.

  2. Hi! This is my first visit to your site and wanted to tell you how beautiful your nature shots are! I don’t live anywhere near a farm so it’s a nice change of scenery for me :)

      Hi Sarah, thank you so much for visiting my site! Spring is a beautiful time on the farm. It’s supposed to reach 106F tomorrow, so I’ll be happy to be in Reno while my brother is working away in the field.
