I finally have some flowers in bloom now. The first one is Double Pink Flowering Almond. Now I planted three of these several years ago. One died, too much water. The other two should, I say should be larger because of the age if it were not for BAD BUNNIES. The only reason it is so big this year is that our dog Cooper keeps the BAD BUNNIES out of the fenced in area.
The next picture is of an apple tree my husband's grandfather planted some 40 or 50 years ago. The acreage in our back yard should be full of fruit trees that his grandfather used to farm. However, due to whatever reasons, we only have a few real old ones left and since they have not been sprayed in so many years the fruit is real bad.
I wish I could take the picture that shows how amazingly beautiful it is right now. This is what our little fruit trees look like. I was 5 months pregnant with my oldest son when we planted 50 trees. There are only about 15 left, dang deer and BAD BUNNIES.
I love to go and cut branches to bring in to put on the kitchen table and around the house. The look great in white pitchers.
