“The Tree of Love”

A beautiful British apple tree which has long since been associated with love and marriage,

I love her twisted branche, the way she spreads out rther than growing straight up.

Her flowers provide an important source of nectar and pollen for bees and insects and her fruit is eaten by birds such as blackbirds and thrushes.

Some, my mother-in-law included, also use the apples to create a crab apple jelly, which is delicious.

She will complement and garden and offer her a lifetime of love to those who are lucky enough to receive her as a gift.
