I love Apple blossom time. It happens in May.
These apple blossoms are in a very old tree on my Templeton property. I've been here for 23 years, and the tree was mature when I arrived. It's not a perfect tree. It has a couple of dead branches that need to come off. It is decorated year round with Spanish moss. But when it comes to bearing fruit, it's the most reliable fruit tree we have now.

I guess one doesn't have to be in perfect health to stay useful. One has to make the best use of what one has left, with God's help. That's what this tree did. See what happened with a couple of other damaged trees.

Whenever the apple trees bloom, this song comes to mind: "Apple Blossom Time"
I wrote this post to begin the 2016 A-Z Challenge The requirement was to post at least one photo a day of subjects in alphabetical order with a few words to explain the photo. My theme is, of course, plants and gardening.
