Apple Tree

Apple Tree

Our old apple tree is still going strong.  The trunk has bent over so much that the tree rests on the ground.  It is full or woodworm and there is only a small portion of trunk left in the ground.  And yet it still produces this amazing crop of apples each year - and you don't need a ladder to pick them!!
