It's that time of year again, the blossom is on the trees and what a fantastic welcome sight it is. We have 2 Cherry trees and 4 Apple trees in our garden and this year looks like a bumper crop may be coming. I say may because some years if the weather does not play nice the wind and rain can knock off the blooms before they are pollinated and we get little or nothing!
And some years we get so much produce we have to beg friends, family and sometimes complete strangers to take some Apples, please!
The Cherries on the other hand, we have no choice but to share with the birds, they get the top ones which I can't reach even with a ladder but the bottom boughs are mine!
How beautiful are these blossoms, the carpet of falling petals are worth clearing up with what comes after, glorious apples and cherries to eat!
