Apple Blossoms

Back in 2008, our little backyard apple tree produced tons of tasty apples (check out this post from my wife's blog to read more about that summer's bumper crop). But in 2009 we only got two sad-looking apples. I'm hoping that we will have another great harvest this year, because we already have tons of lovely blossoms on the apple tree! Here are a few photos I just took of the pretty pink and white flowers.

Beautiful pics! I'm hoping for another good harvest too. It sure looks promising!

Thanks for the photos. Is this tree organically grown? What methods to you use to avoid agrochemicals?

Hi Anonymous, The tree is in my back yard so of course it's 100% organic. We would never use or need any pesticides, or agrochemicals or anything like that. Things grow just fine here in western Washington.

They look like cherry blossoms. Beautiful none the less.
