Time flies -

- apple blossom in my garden has been and gone:



This is probably the last time this old tree is sticking it's blossoms into the sky. Way before we moved here it acquired canker - which we can't cure it off. All the other apple trees in the garden have it now as well and so we will have to have a fresh start.

That's beautiful! =) Sometime I want to try to plant an apple tree even though I know that we don't have the space for it. They are so beautiful then they bloom.

I want to cover myself in this pictire - you can print it on a pillowcase - loce the pink and sky blue - they go together so heavenly!

A wonderful way to view the beautiful blue sky. I think I smell apples :)

How sad to lose the old trees.

I agree with ellievellie - why not print this photo on fabric using decal paper, so your apple tree is on, say, a cushion as a keepsake?

Oh that sad to lose your trees. Our apple tree (one) had blooms and I missed it. Must have been way too busy blogging.

A beautiful shot!
My Mom lost some trees this year. They had stood for over fifty years.

Thanks for your visit. :)

I love the composition of this shot, the pastels, so soothing to the eyes. You captured it very well.

Don't let it hear you or you'll break its heart!

I have four just outside my bedroom window... I watch them through the seasons... Maybe this tree will give you beautiful apples this year!

The pink and the blue look so good together. Such a shame about the canker - does the tree still produce apples?
