There's been mayhem in the orchard. 

We've procrastinated about pruning the fruit trees for three years in a row. 
This winter called for drastic measures if we were going to be able to pick the fruit without a very tall ladder.
We've been a bit tentative about how to go about it. 
In the end, hubby just started with the chainsaw and gave them all a thorough chop. 

It looked horrible. 

But things often look worse before they get better.
The trees are already shooting new growth and even a few tentative blossoms are making an appearance with the promise that next year will be a bumper crop.

Hope and optimism are essential in the country.
