Apple blossom 

Today’s photos are of the apple tree in the manse garden, we have three but this one is old and gnarled – its branches reaching almost to the ground – and it produces the most amazing blossom. It is particularly lovely this year.

   
 

Blossom of the apple trees! 
Mossy trunks all gnarled and hoary, 
Grey boughs tipped with rose-veined glory, 
Clustered petals soft as fleece 
Garlanding old apple trees!
