#109 Freeze Dried Fruit Trees

On my way into Medford, I took a different road than usual and came upon this frozen pear orchard. (Click on the top photo and you can see the icicles.) The orchardists turn the water on when the weather goes below freezing in order to protect the blossoms in ice. Strange, but it works. It was so beautiful to see because the sun was coming up and the ice was sparkling. Fortunately, there weren't any cars on the 2-lane road so I could snap some photos.

Haven't you left winter yet? We ate outside yesterday and today I got sunburned sitting on the deck.

Got the garden ready to plant the tomatoes today. It must be spring.
