This morning my plein-aire group, Garden Artists, painted at the Happy Apple Farm in Penrose, Colorado, about 50 minutes south of town. The blossoms there are just a little bit ahead of those here in the Springs. Interestingly, different rows of the trees in the orchard are different kinds of apples. So, some of the rows are really blossoming and some are just starting to bloom. I'd never thought about that before, but it makes sense that all apple trees wouldn't blossom at the same time, if they were a different kind of apple. The owner explained to us which rows were which. I chose the rows with the most blossoms. It was a beautiful morning for plein-aire painting.
