Dawgluvers apple tree made me think of the cherry trees around here. I didn't make it there this year, because I was in Regensburg, but I have some from the past

Oh, these are breathtaking, Cara!

Many years ago, we were in Washington, DC, when the cherry trees that were a gift from Japan were in bloom. They were spectacular. Then a few years ago, I read that some very busy beavers gnawed down the same cherry trees!

cara, those trees are lovely! We have a couple small flowering trees in our yard but nothing with as much impact as that row. Like Dawg said, breathtaking.

Didn't you just finish up with last year's crop? You were doing apples around the clock and ran out of people to give them to. I would suggest middle of the night deliveries to all you neighbors and then go out of town with them. Leave a bag on each porch.

With a crop like that I would suggest she climb that tree and start cutting off branches.

I've got a suggestion for a good little battery operated chainsaw.

I'd love to have apples. There are two trees in the garden here and they have lots of apples every summer but I can't get at them either on the tree or on the ground because the area is so over grown.

My mother planted some dwarf conifers on a new rockery she starter abot 20 years ago. The "dwarves" are now fifteen feet high and growing upwards and out wards and I have to fight my way through them and a jungle of other "small" shrubs (mahonia, ceanothus and bachelor's buttons) to get near enough to see the apples let alone get near enough to pick hem. Can't knock them off with a long pool as I wouldn't be able to pick up the fruit
