Apple Blossoms

When we first moved to Alvin many years ago, I planted three apple trees in our backyard. One died in the first few years, but, the other two lived. Over the years those two poor apple trees tried to thrive in a climate way to hot and humid for any self respecting apple tree. They were always setting blooms at the wrong time of the year. And I was always taking pictures of apple blossoms…

I grew so fond of those two trees that when we ended up building a new house that was going to place them in our kitchen, I paid to have them moved. Then the very first cement truck coming in to pour the foundation managed to take out the smaller of the two trees. So now there is just the one and this year (2013) it produced just one apple.
