Le Pommier (The Apple Tree)

It is now confirmed: I have an apple tree beside my home. It is a young tree, about ten years old, or perhaps younger, but it is showing lots of apples for its size. Now, I do not know what type of apples this tree will give becuase the apples are small and green in colour, but I am hoping that they are something like the Red Spartan, or Red Delicious, or even Fuji Apples, as I am not much of a fanatic about green apples.

The best part about this tree is where it is located. I can reach out my bedroom window and grab the nearest branch, which has about ten apples on it! talk about a fresh midnight snack without having to leave, or get out of bed, eh?

Right now these apples are about two to four cementers in diameter, still a long ways from being a good bite size fruit. I figure in about two months these should be good for picking. I am just hoping that the bugs, kids and other pesky intruders do not get to them before I do!
