SORRY ... no cards to share with you today!  
Hubby came home from work yesterday with a fairly large card order for a co-worker and I've been working on that project.

AIS (Adventures in Stamping) is this weekend here in Akron, Ohio ... YIPPEE!
Of course that's going to cut into my crafting time and I might be MIA from blogland this weekend, but I'll be having fun checking out all the new stamps & products!!

The Apple Tree
Way up high in an apple tree
Two little apples smiled down at me
I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples
M-m-m-m they were good.

The other day I showed you a photo of our young apple tree ... planted in the front of our home and I promised you a photo of the 100+ year old apple tree that is in our side yard.  I am SO GLAD they didn't bulldoz over this wonder work of nature when they were building the home we live in!!  Oh if this tree could talk ... I can only imagine the amazing stories it could tell ...
  Isn't it magestic!!
You can tell by how the chair & table sitting under this tree are dwarfed ... just how MASSIVE this beauty is in size!  This old timer still has more blooming to do, but they are calling for rain/wind over the next few days and I was afraid to wait any longer to get my photo.  I'm pleased to say too that the birdhouse that Mark made and hung in this apple tree before he got sick is once again occupied ... this time by a family of chickadees.

We had apple trees in our backyard when I was a kid. Northern Spy apples, I think. (Good and sour the way I like 'em!) Trees were beautiful....but I hated them. The bees were always buzzing around - and I was scared sheet-less of them!

Darlene, these are so pretty. Fruit trees are so pretty for the short time they are blooming.
