What a pretty tree.....I've never seen an apple tree in bloom before!

Is this your tree with the super size apples?

This is my Red Delicious tree. The King Apple tree has far fewer blooms each year....
It looks like a very good year for apples.... [grin]

A little Pixie from Texas wanted to see them...
I didn't realize how lucky I was to be able to enjoy them here! I'll be munching green apples in August, but the best fruit won't be ready until early October. Yummmmmmmmmmmm!

What's your favorite apple?? Mine is the Gala....and the Pink Lady. We have orchards around here that we can go and pick apple ourselves and then they weigh them and you pay a price per pound. They do that with cherries around here too....and strawberries. Right now at the market, we only carry 1 type of local apple...all the rest are coming from Washington. Are you sending them to us, Bill? [Smile]

Jennifer ~ I discovered Gala apples this year, and they are my favorites too! I was getting an upset stomach when eating apples before, but these seem to be ok for me - they are delicious too!

We only have 2 farms left here in our county, and you can pick apples there also. One of them also has pear and peach picking when the time is right. [thumb] The one farm that had raspberry picking - YUMMMMMMMY! - sold out to a developer last fall. [Eek!] [tears] [Mad]

Great pictures, again, Bill - so pretty and refreshing!

Lynne, you need to come for a visit. You'd love the orchards around here. I think the one has peaces and pears as well....not totally sure tho.

I was never one to like the Delicious apples. Not crunchy enough for me, I guess, but the Gala....yeah, baby. I love those things!!! [kissies] I can't wait until cherries are ready...just a few more weeks now. I like the Reineer...those are the yellow and red ones. Oh man...I'm soo hungry for summer right now! [Love] [Love] [Love]
