Most Loved Old Apple Tree - Without Pesticides


One day I have entered the garden of a friend and saw that apple tree. I stood up, my jaw dropped and looked at it breathless...

That is the most beautiful apple tree I ever saw - the very first words, that slipped out of my mouth were "Owww..... you love it, right? This is the most loved apple tree I saw".

"I truly love it" - my friend said - "It is very old, sometimes I talk to her and cheer her up".

There is no chemicals applied. Abundance of fruits makes family and all friends happy.
Sometimes there are worms in the apples, but that is life - we need to share things we have, right?

It was planted by my friends father and until today it is pruned every year. Under the tree, you can see periwinkle growing, accompanied with yellow tulips in the spring.

I will always think of it as Most Loved Apple Tree.

Beautiful apple tree Ewa. I visited my mom a couple of weeks ago, and brought home organic apples from her trees. They are so delicious, so much better than the ones at the stores.

This is a most beautiful apple tree. It is better to have a few apples with worms than all apples poisoned.

This IS a beautiful apple tree, and I love knowing it grows chemical free. I've been wanting to plant one or two apple trees but didn't wanted to do organically, so I'm inspired! Thank you for sharing it:)

I think a tree almost develops a personality as it gets older - something to do with looking more gnarled and individual I think.

I agree, Ewa! That is such an amazing looking apple tree! I cannot begin to express the lovely feelings I get when I contemplate nature or when I see a picture that has anything nature in it... and I thank YOU because that's the feeling I get every time I visit your lovely nature blog....

A hug to you, and joy and much laughter...
