That tree smells great

Apple malus blossoms 2011

It’s apple and pear blossom time, although with most of the pears in the immediate area gone (chopped, eliminated, split and removed, various sad tales), I was glad to find this ancient and huge apple tree in the corner of the middle school parking lot, managing to hang on—and even thrive. Perhaps it gets a boost from the huge heating-and-AC unit that’s nearby?

    OOOH, I’m so envious. The blooms in your area seem early. Here in Arkansas I’m seeing only buds, but at least there are warm southern breezes.
