Weekly Photo Challenge – Change

This week’s Photo challenge is Change. It is a sort of tradition in our family to give a child a tree on their second birthday. My parents gave my son a crab apple tree. It is now in it’s fifth year. In the spring it is laden with pink/white flowers. At this time of year the tiny apples are just turning from green to shades of yellow and orange.

The transformation from flower to fruit is in itself amazing – a change that would not be possible with bees and other pollinators.

  1. I have to say that apple blossom is my favourite – and the bumblebee is magnificent. Do you have enough apples to make crab apple jelly? And, silly question, but does there have to be another crab apple tree for the pollinators to do their job?
