Apple Blossoms

The apple trees are finally starting to bloom. I have a picture of the Almata on the left in full bloom on April 26 last year and today it is just starting to open. It is a gorgeous tree with reddish leaves, dark, dark flowers, and fruit that has deep red flesh. It makes amazing applesauce. On the right are blossoms from our 100 year old King tree. It is a huge tree towering over the house. We usually can't get to the apples on the very top but the pileated woodpeckers get those.

I've been over in town working as a substitute teacher at the high school the last couple of days and rushing home to plant. Monday evening I got the last 200 glad bulbs in and last evening planted a couple of flats of stocks. I'm home today and plan on planting a lot more flower seedlings.
