We’ve had a small apple tree in our backyard in “downtown” Courtenay for a couple of years now but it has yet to produce blooms. It’s actually a refugee from my mother-in-law’s place in the country where its growth was effectively kept in check by deer browsing. Looks like the little tree is finally feeling comfortable and now its decided that this is the spring to flower. I’m just hoping that there was enough insect activity for the blossoms to be pollinated. It’s been a cool wet spring and mason bees have been pretty quiet.
These flowers are pretty much done. Now we’ve just got to wait for the apples to appear!
