Weekly Photo Challenge (Growth)

New growth from old wood

I love the lush but delicate blossom that springs each year from the old knarled wood of this apple tree. The buds start out such a deep pink and fade into pastel as the flowers open. Each flower has the potential to grow into a sweet juicy apple…..the tree grows in my garden and before me my Granny lived here…. so four generations of my family have grown healthy and strong eating the apples from this tree.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands
