Isn’t that tree pretty!

It’s only two and a half years ago that we bought the Scrumptious apple tree for my daughter and already she seems to have forgotten which of the trees is hers.

‘Isn’t that tree pretty!’ she exclaimed when she saw the blossom but she was equally surprised when I informed her it was actually hers.

Anyway, hopefully she will now remember. And in the short yet, I also hope the frosts we are getting won’t damage the such pretty blossom. For that matter, it needs to be fertilised by blossom from another apple tree or two, so let’s hope that the buds in the rest of the garden get a move on and open up before it is too late.

So far so good, though. It’s only a young tree, so just a few apples would be sufficient this year. The ones last year were a good size and with all the mulching the tree has had, fingers crossed it delivers come late August.

As an addendum, after pressing the publish button on this post, I was notified by WP that I had been flying with them for 9 years. I don’t blog as much now as I did then – partly because I’m no longer trapped at home with a small child. I’m not even officially trapped at home because of the pandemic either, although life seems to have found its way into my home more, so being out is less of a necessity. I wonder how long this will last.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
