Apple Tree Work

Something about these neat piles of branches all around our lawn I think is so pretty :)
Jodan spent much of the day on Monday working on pruning our apple tree, and there is still quite a bit more to do. The last time we had it pruned, I kind of panicked with how much was cut off... so it's been a few years since it's had a thorough pruning. Finally I was okay with taking care of our great climbing tree  (plus it's easier without it's leaves when the change isn't quite so drastic) so Jordan set to work. And what a job!  Hopefully this Fall will be busy with apple picking and lots of apple recipes.

(This kind of Spring cleaning always makes me think of one of my favorite talks  - " I am the gardener here, and I know what I want you to be.")
