The apple trees have blossomed beautifully here

Apple blossom on Hackford Road, 15 May 2013
In April 1874 when Vincent van Gogh was living in Hackford Road he wrote to his brother Theo "the apple trees etc have blossomed beautifully here."

Everything's blossoming later than usual this year after the long winter, and this apple tree in Hackford Road is flowering bravely despite a blustery few days.

Fingers crossed for a fruitful year.
