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!
