Crab Apple Blossom (Malus sylvestris)
In the corner of the garden behind the squirrel feeder is a Crab Apple tree. It must be quite old as it was here when we moved in and a mature tree then. I suspect it was part of the hedge of the original field. Currently it is covered in blossom and assuming the bees do a good job it will crop well in the autumn. It usually does.
I am told that the apples make a wonderful jelly, I wouldn't know. Ours are exported to Edinburgh where Katkatkat has fun making apple wine. I tend to choose my blips on a "can I repeat that shot basis". Clearly most shots are repeatable but the blossom is getting past its best so I thought I had better blip it today.
