Fruits & Flowers

For our anniversaries Dave and I have developed the tradition of buying gifts that are a fun twist on the traditional anniversary gifts.

The traditional anniversary gift for the fourth wedding anniversary is "fruits and flowers". So when we celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary back in May, we decided to combine our presents and buy a new fruit tree for the front yard.

This past weekend, with our flowers beds constructed, we finally got around to buying our tree.

We decided on a Honeycrisp Apple - primarily due to its compact size - it should only grow to 4 meters tall and spread to about 1.5 m wide.

Right now it looks pretty tiny but hopefully in a couple years it will grow up to match the apple tree on the other side of the house that we planted when we moved in seven years ago.
