Apple Blossom Time
Apple blossoms are so pretty and you smell them before you see them. Here is one from a Jonathan Apple tree. The pinks are deeper and the whites are creamy.
These lacy white and pale, pale pink blossoms come from our Grandmother Tree. This old tree is over 80 years old. It produces two types of apples. One of them is a gravenstein and the other is a yellow transparent. They both have a delicious old time flavor and are good for fresh eating, drying, juicing, pies, and applesauce.
The old barn and Grandmother Tree have been here since 1930. Oh, the tales they could tell ~
