Look - buds, flowers, and new baby leaves!
We've lived in this house for less than a year, so although we enjoyed the spoils of the apple tree last year, I really don't know the timing of when the tree will get its leaves back, when we'll start to see apples, or even if it bears fruit every year. We will be waiting eagerly, though! They were delicious. This year: pies, and definitely more applesauce!
