Apple blossom

Perfect pink cups

Apple blossom has to be the most beautiful of all the fruit blossoms.

This sprig is on one of the ‘native’ trees – that is, ones that were already here when we bought the house.

The native trees always bloom first. They’re robust and I never spray them. But their apples usually go uneaten because they’re hard and fibrous with very little juice.
