Apple blossoms are so beautiful, smell so sweet, and don't last very long. I'm not certain if it was because we had such a hard winter, but the apple trees have had the most gorgeous blooms this year. We were very fortunate to have taken a picture or two before they mysteriously disappeared overnight. Here is a picture of our neighbor's tree:
And here is a picture of our tree that is the result of my son planting apple seeds after he had eaten an apple one day.
Last year we were so surprised to see a few apples growing on it. From the looks of all of the blossoms, this year we can look forward to quite a few apples.
Here is a close up of one of the blossoms. Can't you just imagine how sweet it smells from this picture that my daughter took?
And of course another neighbor's honey bees are especially enjoying this spring treat.
