I'll Be With You.... apple blossom time, I'll be with you to change your name to mine. Remember that beautiful old song by the Andrews Sisters?My heart hums it as everything is bursting with blooms.
This is our apple tree in one of the side yards. Leonard brought it home as a little twig when they were having Trees for Trash at the city dump one time. It's really spectacular this year. Diane

How pretty Diane, we have apple trees and they cycle every other year. This is the off year so no blossoms, last year they were loaded. I'll enjoy yours instead!

What a beautiful tree! You must love to stand under it and look up into the blue sky.
Yesterday I complimented a man on his garden and tree and he told me that he had planted the tree 40 years ago - you and he know the satisfaction of seeing a tree through from sapling to maturity - wonderful!
