Apple Blossoms

Our apple tree is in bloom. The delicacy of the petals is amazing.

The tree was a housewarming gift several years ago from Karl's cousin Scott and his wife Judy. I always think of them when the tree is blooming and of course when the apples are ripe for picking.

In the photo below, I stood inside the tree and looked skyward.

I almost wish it would bloom longer. It is so pretty.

I agree, wish the flowering trees would last forever! But then again, I guess that would mean no apples. Love your pics, happy SWF from a fellow Washingtonian.

I agree and you've captured that feeling perfectly in your photos.

And those particular blossoms are very nice... with the pink and the white.
