Very nice, nothing like apple blossom even better for the age of the tree.

It has lovely shape and form. Thanks for posting.

What a pretty tree. I imagine the fragrance is wonderful when it’s in bloom. You’re very fortunate to be able to continue to care for this tree started by your aunt.

It would be so nice to have a big apple tree like that one.I would make up a bunch of pies and freeze them for later enjoyment.

Well, if not old, – at least “more mature”. LOL

Great looking tree. Got me thinking how old can an apple tree get? A quick search on the internet and it looks like over 200 years old. I hope the two I just planted someday look like yours. I agree with Debbi the first image could go in a frame.

Have you ever tried apple cakes? It’s a recipe in the Readers Digest Cookery Year. Nothing like them. The pastry is what does the trick but they have to be eaten straight away or at least the day you make them. Lovely tree.
