Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Flowers

I was on my deck water the plants when I noticed that my apple tree was starting to bloom.  I was so incredibly happy as it has barely bloomed for th last two years.  I pruned it heavily last year in hopes of stimulating some new growth this year and it looks like it indeed has new growth.  It’s an 8-year-old Gala and lives in a 30 gallon pot and while I have gotten some small apples off of it in the past, it was bought for decorative purposes so I’m happy to see it bloom.

I am reminded that flowers come in all shapes and sizes.  I can and do grow trees, shrubs and food bearing plants well in my little contained deck gardens.  I also ‘make’ flowers when I feel I can’t grow them.  So I present to you today different flowers from my outdoor and indoor gardens.
