My grandmother raised plum trees, but she doused them with so much pesticide (straight out of the can, not diluted!) that I never dared eat them. The one time I had to (my mother forced me to), they were rather sour.

We had old apple trees in our yard when I was growing up. The housing development was built on the grounds of an old apple orchard, and the builders had miraculously left many of the trees standing (though they ripped off all the topsoil and came back later to sell it to the new homeowners!). The trees had reverted to wild apples, which are yellow with red stripes. My mother would make pies and apple sauce from them. They were sweet and a little mushy, but I loved them. Alas, the trees were old and stopped bearing when I was still quite young. But my favorite thing about the trees was that I could wake up on a May morning and see nothing but pink and white apple blossoms out my bedroom window. And the smell---ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Hm, I bet they were heavenly, Judy. I'm anxious for the cherry blossoms to bloom again. We have one tree and my Mom has two. Others in the area have them too, but there are none as gorgeous as the ones in Washington, around the Tidal Basin. I might send some of my pics from two years ago to Holger for posting. Have to find them first though.
Still, your childhood memories of those apple blossoms is very nostalgic. What a lovely memory. And against a blue sky---- nothing could have been more wondrous!
