When Molly the Cat and I opened the curtains in the living room this morning, the first thing we noticed was the puddle of water on the patio.
"Look, Molly! It rained during the night." Noticing the white petals in the puddle, I glanced up at the apple tree. "Apple blossoms!"
Molly the Cat looked out the window, posed in her So are we going outside to explore further stance. She didn't seem as pleased about the apple blossoms as the Mama and the Husband did when I told them.
It may be a good year for apples from that tree, which the Mama planted from seeds 28 years ago.
I'm hooking up with Seasons, a new weekly meme hosted by Jeanette at St Germain's Blog. Click here to check out other participants.
Thanks so much Susie for linking these beautiful apple blossoms to Seasons of this week! When I think of apple blossoms, the first that comes to mind is being in high school and having the assignment for art to sketch outside. I and my friends went to an apple orchard, and I sketched, and then I did one for one of my friends too, so she wouldn't get in trouble. But the teach caught it:) I learned my lesson, lol!ReplyDelete
Hope to see you back at Seasons next week:):)
That would've been a cool photo of you and your friends sketching in an apple orchard. An illustration, even better.Delete
The apple blossoms are some of my favorites.ReplyDelete
I forget how delicately pink they are every spring.Delete
Those apple blossoms look so beautiful! What a wonderful message of hope and renewal that Spring brings to the world!ReplyDelete
There used to be years where I missed out on Spring because I was so focused on work. The Mama's gardens have spoiled me.Delete
What a lovely photo, the apple blossoms against the background of blue sky look beautiful :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Eunice. :-)Delete
Love to see apple blossom!ReplyDelete
Nothing as beautiful as a fruit tree in full bloom. Here'sReplyDelete
to many mouth-watering bites from shiny apples.
These ones will be red. The other two trees, also began as seeds by the Mama, will be green. One tree tart, the other mild.Delete
First the beautiful blossoms and later the wonderful apples. An apple tree is a wonderful gift for your Mama to have planted so many years ago.ReplyDelete
I like how you say that, Pondside. Thank you.Delete
Oh this is pretty and just shows how much spring is in the air.ReplyDelete
"Spring is in the air." Isn't there a song with that title?Delete
Oh beautiful and could not be more perfect for Spring and "Seasons". Apple blossoms really define Spring (at least I think I remember that; we really don't have much Typical Spring here in SW Florida -- but I remember it when we lived in Oregon). Love this post; thanks for sharing and for the memories.ReplyDelete
I appreciate your kind words Sallie. For me, it would be the yellow mustard.Delete
The ornamental cherry's are blossoming everywhere ... we're having pink snowdrifts! :)ReplyDelete
Love the image of that. We have an ornamental pear tree in the front year. This was the first year that it gave us lots and lots of snow.Delete
What A Gorgeous View!!!!ReplyDelete
I think this would make a cool fabric prin.Delete
These are some awesome blossoms! Great shot.ReplyDelete
Wonderful....this is a special time of year....ReplyDelete
Love apple blossoms. We have a bit of a wait before we see ours here in Wyoming.ReplyDelete
Oooh, a cool animation would be a U.S. map of apple trees and seeing the bare trees bloom, turn full of leaves, then apples.Delete
Hello, the apple blossoms are beautiful. Lovely shot. Enjoy your weekend! Happy Easter!ReplyDelete
THanks, Eileen! May your weekend be wonderful, too.Delete
