You may remember my sadness that my apple tree had no blossom this year. I had at one point thought I saw a blossom but when I looked closer I couldn’t see it.
Then this morning when opening an upstairs window I looked out at the garden and thought that I could see an apple under the tree. At first I thought that it must be a joke but who could or would get into the garden to do this? So that rather ruled it out.
So I came down stairs to investigate.
Often I have looked at it this summer rather regretfully.
But no! it really was an apple.
Of course it is much too early and rather green (but definitely a Cox)
but still it seemed a blessing on the day.
