The sun didn’t shine a lot today, but when it did my apple tree looked so beautiful.
I have a serious love hate relationship with this tree.
I love how beautiful it blooms in the Spring and cascades over the path. It’s been in our yard all the years we’ve been here and survived the storms of 1999 and 2014.
And I hate this tree too….because every bloom means an apple will grow there….and I don’t want the apples. I’ve never wanted the apples, but they continue to show up.
Some years it doesn’t bloom, which is kind of sad, but then I think about no rotting apples falling from it and I do a little happy dance. I settle in and see the beauty of the tree and the life it as enjoyed in our yard.
There will be a zillion apples on the tree this year, and there’s not a thing I can do about it, so for today, I relax and enjoy the gorgeous blooms Mother Nature has blessed me with.
