I know these aren't the only blossoming trees around here, but though I'd share these photos from our backyard anyway.
These are the blossoms from our McIntosh apple tree. We still have nearly a hundred pints of applesauce that we got from this amazing tree last fall! I keep forgetting to use it. I'm hoping that our daughter and son-in-law have room for jars of applesauce, along with The Boxcar Children books from her childhood that we're taking with us when we go to visit this weekend. Maybe I should make it a deal: For every Boxcar book, you get a jar of applesauce. Take it or leave it.
The beloved 'bleeding heart,' just beginning to blossom. I think this is one of my favorites because it was my grandma's favorite. It is so delicate and intricate, such a showcase of Design>Designer.
Blossoms on the Golden Delicious [apple] tree.
The flowering crab, just at the beginning of it's blossoming time. I hope we get a few days after we return home to look at these glorious blossoms, before wind or rain blow them all off the tree. Of all the trees in our yard, this may be my favorite.
Got any good ideas?
