My apple trees are blooming! I have several different varieties, all have been hybridized for our warmer temperatures, which means that they require less hours of chilling to produce fruit. I love apple trees as much
for their ornamental quality as for the fruit. I prune them to keep them relatively small to make them easier to manage and to bring out the beauty of their structure.
I think that these branches look so pretty against the stone wall.
In the back garden this row of apple trees has been planted to act as a screen.
Soon I will be having have lots of these!
And don't forget... "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"!
