    1. I remember when our apricot showed it first blossom during January. For months I would watch how the flowers turned from flowers to tiny apricots. Come June when they started to ripen up, I would check them every day to see when the first one would be picked & eaten. That made my day. Royal apricots are the best. They are like eating candy.
