Photo Hunters: Colorful



Apple Blossoms
The colors of apple blossoms are pale but these blooms are important to me. They indicate that the trees survived the late snow storms we had. The trees grow wild in the woods and are food to many animals. They grow in an area of springs where water bubbles up out of the ground. I seldom go there because I have to put on barn boots and slog through dense brush. This tree grows near the driveway so it is easy to reach. Amy will go into this wild orchard in the fall and pick enough apples to freeze for her and me.

The trees are also a symbol of my new rich life in Vermont. I never thought I would be caretaker to one apple tree, let alone nearly 20. I am very thankful for my blessings here.

Thank you for visiting and I hope your holiday weekend is safe and fun!

  1. I've also been happy to see apples (and cherries, and pears, and strawberries) blossom. But I miss the bees. Have you been noticing fewer bees this year? Lovely photo. And I did finally do the 7 things meme!

  3. I've always loved the looks and colour of the apple tree blossoms...we have one in our backyard that's full of blossoms right now and like you, I'm glad to see that because of all the frost we've had in May! xo
