It's flowering apple tree time~
Our little town is abloom with them..from whites to deepest pinks and in between soft pinks..That huge one is the one wesee out the back windows..the spread is unbelievable..
The wonderfully twisted one is ours through the side windows..
It lost many limbs one year..due to a 100 yr old pine of our neighbors falling..traversing their yard smashing our hedge ..maiming this old tree..with the tips of their pine tree through our screen!
It has returned through the last few years with a whole new persona..Thetree Dr knew what he was doing..
Anyways this year is a showstopping year for these 2 crabapples..
One year..there were almost no blooms:(
Only that one time..
The double beauty..is heartackingly beautiful..they are in front of oli's school..I went and actually walked inside their form..the limbs and blooms surround you as if in an enchanted castle.
I decided to take advantage of seeing apple trees in bloom in orchards..to make that fabulous ..fabulously easy apple cake again..
You can find the recipe here..
I made my slices a bit larger in this one..I prefer the look of thinner..but my apples were so small:)
This cake is gorgeous..delicious and easy..
Have no fear in making it♥
I have to keep up with nature and it's offerings at the moment.
I don't want to forget a single thing.
