Apple Tree For Fingerprint Friday..







































I have to use this old apple tree for Pampering Beki's Fingerprint Friday. I put pictures up the other day, but it is all in bloom now and I have never seen anything like it. In all our years here, it never looked like this.





To me, it is such a beautiful fingerprint from God, it was worth another blog. The tree is leaning to the side and every year it leans a little more.



You know what? There is kind of a lesson here. Many would have cut this tree down, because it is old and the apples are not good for eating. But look at how much joy/beauty it is giving us this year? Think of what would have been lost? Nothing is worthless in God's Eyes. We all have a purpose, old or young..



My pictures did not do it justice, you just can't believe the beauty. Now the blosoms are falling and there will be white pedals all over the yard.






Be sure to visit Pampering Beki's blog for more wonderful fingerprints.











Till next time, keep looking up.

Oh my, that's magnificent!!!! I love the idea of still being beautiful no matter how old we get. If not on the outside, at least on the inside. :)

These are lovely photos!!! Apple trees are really blooming. I can thinking how many tons fruit it give you this year.

Better old, healthy & happy! That's all it counts. I guess?

Don't forget my trendy freaky day!

Have a happy week-end!

Much love from a rainy & chilly Stockholm...

Sometimes i think there is nothing so magnificent as a tree, it makes me think of the Joyce Kilmer poem, Trees, which ends with the lines;

"Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree."

and clearly there is living proof of this in your garden!
have a good week.

Even though that tree is old, it is still beautiful! And just think of all the living things that call it home!

That is one of the most gorgeous flowering tree I've ever seen! I'm sure everyone who passes it would give it a 2nd look and feel touched at the same time!
