Apple Blossom Time on the California Coast


I get to drive by acres of apple trees every day on my way into town and they are all in bloom right now. These really old ones have been calling me to stop and take a photo for years now. I finally did on a day when I was also fortunate enough to be able to talk to the owner. These wonderful old trees are "Yellow Pearmains" and no longer planted commercially. But there are nurseries out there specializing in providing young trees of many "antique" or "vintage" cultivars. So hopefuly these will continue on.
