Spring blossom is a celebration of winter's end, and a reminder that summer is just around the corner. Pretty pink and white flowers burst into bloom, providing an early source of pollen and nectar for bees and other pollinators, before falling from their boughs like confetti.
While there are many other spring-flowering shrubs and spring-flowering trees, it's generally the flowers of fruiting trees belonging to the Rosaceae family including apples, cherries, peaches and pears, which are referred to as blossoms - the flowers which precede their fruit.
