Apple Blossom Pairs

On this wet and miserable morning it is cheering to look back at some photos I took a couple of days ago when the sun was shining. I have chosen a couple of these to share for Helena's weekly meme Pairs. This week I have gone for Open and Closed or it at a stretch it could be Cooker and Eater!
The apple blossom is only just breaking out into flower. The Bramley tree in the garden has just a few open blossom.


Meanwhile the two ballerina trees that have eating apples are still tightly shut.


Fingers crossed for a good crop of apples this year such as we had last September. A distinct disadvantage of the pretty dwarf variety is that Monty (the greedy Labrador) helps himself to apples directly off the tree! Looking at these reminds me that I must go and look at the Katy apple tree in the main garden given to Kate by my mum when she was born.

  3. beautiful - my apple trees are only starting to show colour. when I was a child we had a Labrador who would find the ripe strawberries and eat them off the plants whenever she could

  6. So pretty - especially the second one.
    I'm still thinking about your apple jelly! Do you think Pink Ladies mixed with Bramleys would work?
