Apple blossom magic is happening this month in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. Welcome to Week 370 (5/24/2018) of Travel Photo Thursday. I’ve had a week of unexpected adventures (all good), so today’s post is going to be a quick one. I want to share some shots of the apple blossoms here in Annapolis Royal. In fact, I deliberately headed downtown this morning on a mission to get a shot of some gorgeous trees in full bloom. Enjoy the glorious blossoms gracing my town and the entire Annapolis Valley, right now.
If you haven’t the contest to win the photo book Annapolis Valley Through the Seasons, you still have time. Check it out here.

This is a group of three trees, all fully in bloom and it’s glorious to simply stand and gawk. They are located in the downtown beside the historic Sinclair Inn Museum, a National Historic Site. As long as we don’t get much rain or wind, this blast of pink should be with us until early next week.
The historic Hilldale House Inn, a half-minute stroll from my home, boasts another burst of apple blossom magic on their front lawn. The Inn has been welcoming visitors to Annapolis Royal for more than 150 years. I walk by at least once a day, and right now those stunning blossoms are a feast to my eyes.
This coming weekend is apple blossom weekend, jam-packed with festivities throughout the Annapolis Valley. The grand parade is scheduled for Saturday afternoon in Kentville, about an hour from Annapolis Royal. The festival (and parade) is one of the oldest in Canada, celebrating 86 years. If you find yourself in the Annapolis Valley this weekend, here’s the schedule of events.
