Flower Mandala (#7) A= for Apple Blossom

A= for Apple Blossom ATC (not for trade)

The apple tree is in our garden. More than 100 years ago the tree was part of an orchard belonging to a convent. The tree is the only reminder left. It's blossoms are so pink! Unbelievable. The little apples smell delicious and are a great treat for our deer in the autumn. I am allergic to apples (I have 15 apple trees!) so I never eat them. But I love the trees! De appel boom staat in onze tuin. Meer dan 100 jaar geleden stond hier een klooster met een boomgaard. De appelboom is de enige die overgebleven is. Zijn bloesem is zo ontzettend roze! De kleineappeltjes ruiken heerlijk en zijn een heerlijke snack voor de hertjes in de herfst. Ik ben allergisch voor appels (en ik heb 15 appelbomen!)dus eet ze niet, maar ik hou van de bomen .

Have a nice weekend! Een fijn weekend!

“The apple blossom exists to create fruit; when that comes, the petal falls.”
