One of my favorite trees is the apple tree.
I was once told that there are over 800 varieties of apple tree... and I believe it.
They are fairly abundant here; and it always makes me smile to 'round a corner and see one of these beauties in full bloom.
PLUS... the smell is wonderful.
I found some wonderful links about apple trees; and thought I would include them in today's post.
