This must be the first year that both my apple trees have been in blossom at the same time. The flowers on the crab apple may be starting to look a bit jaded, while those on the reinette orleans are just coming out…. but since the wind has left them all intact, I can appreciate their beauty (as well as hoping for a decent crop of apples).
I’m not the only one to appreciate the trees. It’s not the first time I’ve seen a bluetit in the garden – but it is the first time I’ve seen one flitting between the crab and the dessert, clearly searching and presumably finding its supper.
I couldn’t get a photo but I hope you can imagine my delight!
