Our almond, plum and apple trees are in full bloom.

We went for a drive today to the area between the sea and Ancient Corinth.
This are is called Valto which means marsh, the ground looks like dried up mud
There is a mixture of holiday homes, factories,  abandoned grape vines, abandoned orange trees, beautiful tidy olive groves, bee hives, and  even an  excavated ancient cemetery in this area .
The photos are from three orchards in flower today.
I wish you could hear the buzz of the bees visiting the blossom

Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

I am afraid I don't know.
Apparently I should have looked at the shape of the leaves

They look like peach blossom and the third pic shows the leaves damaged by peach-leaf curl!
