We're happy to say that between a late night caper Friday night and an early one Saturday morning, the beehives are now out for pollination. They will remain in the blueberry fields for a couple of weeks until the blossoms are finished. It's always a relief when the hives are landed, as there is the potential for disaster when moving them. On the way to the field in Springhill Saturday morning, we passed these magnificent apple trees in full, multicolour bloom.
We guess that these are 5-in-1 trees, with different varieties grafted onto the same trunk, thus producing the varied blossom colour. The one in our backyard never blooms like this; each variety opens and matures at their own pace so that one branch comes into bloom as the other goes out. These trees are certainly showy.
