I had almost given up hope on my apple trees. Through the whole winter they were nothing but sticks in the ground. I wasn’t sure they had survived being attacked by the goats on too many occasions, but I prayed (oh, how I prayed!) that my poor little trees would sprout leaves once again.
And, seemingly overnight, beautiful green leaves have begun to emerge. Today, I noticed the most exciting thing of all- flower buds!!! They are blooming! As soon as I discovered the pretty pink flowers I busted out in a happy dance all around the yard. (You would have enjoyed seeing that, I’m sure!) I was SO excited!! Then I ran inside to tell Jada to come and see, too.
I am unbelievably thankful that my trees are alive and well. So, now I’m wondering… don’t blooms turn into fruit?? Does this mean that I’m going to have apples? We just planted the tree last year. It’s tiny still. I know its branches could not hold the weight of apples yet. I’m curious to see what happens.
