When we pruned the huge, old apple tree several months ago I was a little concerned we had pushed our luck. Despite my misgivings, over the past couple of weeks our tree has started to blossom… clusters of tiny white flowers, tinged with pink.
I'm so glad we'll see this apple tree in all it's glory this year. We moved into this house at the end of summer and weren't here to experience the blossom last year.
Through September and October, we were overwhelmed with fruit... the last photo shows some of the extraordinary bounty. I'm ashamed to say we only used a tiny portion of the apples this beautiful old tree produced. This year I'm hoping to be more organised and pick them as they become ripe, squirrelling them away in the shed for the winter months.
