This was probably the first time I went to the hills in March. While you can visit the hills in any seasons March brings in the spring blossoms. I have seen a bit of blossoms before but this time they were regal!

Apple Blossoms

There were two apple trees inside the home of my hosts at Jagatsukh. And they used to be full of sparrows all through the day! It was such a pleasure to sit around them. One tree was close to an outdoor water tap and Chhavi would keep playing around it. When the cows would come to that point to drink water she would come away running scared of them.

Apricot Blossoms

These Apricot Blossoms were flowering quite next to the waterfall near Prini. But there was no way I could include them in the picture. So I was content clicking the blossoms itself.

On my walk towards Kakhnal there was a hotel by the name of Rishi Palace and this Apricot tree was flowering next to it. The railings you see in the background are the hotel boundaries.

When I saw this wild white flowering tree I asked Ramakantji what were they and he said, “Cherry.” Oh well now if I can’t go to Japan I will go back to Jagatsukh to click cherries! I wonder how the tree looks with fruits.

And this is the final picture of the delightful spring blossoms I sighted at Jagatsukh this time. And as I said before I am not done with flowers yet.
