The little apple (Malus sylvestris)
Since August I follow the tree or rather the trees of these miniature apples.
Since I saw it, I have been enthusiastic and although I have no photographs since flowering, I do have how the fruit develops in three stages, the first being August, the second September and the last yesterday October.
I got to know these trees in August, they are planted in a park that I usually visit but an area that is a bit too far for us.
That day we were walking slowly and they appeared.
They were full of small apples that would not measure more than 3 centimeters, their intense green color and the fruits together like bunches of grapes.
The first thing I thought was to smile, they are so small and there were so many.
Some were pecked on the ground by birds or cracked by the jaws of a dog.
The trees were epic green all green.
The color is reaching the apples, the green has turned to yellow and this in turn to faint red.
Although I show them closely here, their size is a pinch bigger than a cherry.
I saved the photos and I forgot about the apple tree, but yesterday morning something told me that we had to go see how they were, I thought that there would be no more of those miniature apples.
How wrong I was.
The color had arrived, intense, red.
The ground is full of them, shabby, dry, sad
But we better look up and how these small trees are covered with red fruits like moles on a party dress.
A shrub of the Rosaceae family makes the delights of a day like this Tuesday of #treetuesday
Although its fruits are not edible, its color and nature feed our eyes.
Happy tuesday friends
