Apple trees






<>
Pink Lady Apple
It has has been  wet, cold and miserable so far this week. Apparently it will be fine over the weekend, I hope so, I have some plans for the backyard. I want to dig up some lawn and plant a couple of apple trees, I have decided on a Ballerina apple or Pink lady apple sometimes known as a Cripps apple, and I will need a Granny smith to cross pollunate.  I love the versatility of Granny Smith apples, as a cooking apple or a lovely crisp slightly tart eating apple.   I'm hoping Bunnings will have these in stock because we don't have a plant nursery nearby anymore and I don't want to travel out of my town to find them.   I have been knitting Isaac's beanie this week and hope to have it finished tomorrow.
