March 15, 2014 Good Fruit Grower cover by David Cobb of Mosier, Oregon.

The photo of Hood River orchards in bloom that appears on our March 15, 2014 cover is reminiscent of a quilt made up of farms and homes and blossoming trees instead of fabric.

The photographer, David Cobb of Mosier, Oregon, is new to Good Fruit Grower, but another of his photos has already appeared this year on our February 15, 2014 cover.

I see many beautiful fruit blossom images every year, and I try to vary perspectives, alternating close ups of individual blooms with shots taken of whole trees, orchards, or, as in this case, an entire valley.
