When we were growing up, on Pottruff Rd. my parents had a huge garden, with fruit trees to boot. We had apple trees. We were so sick of picking apples, bushels and bushels of apples. My mother made apple soup, apple cake, apple jam, you name it we had apples in it. Well those trees are long gone and I must say I could sure go for a bowl of apple soup. I do make the apple cake often enough, I don't do the jam. So when I spotted this lily in the garden center "apple blossom" I decided I didn't have room for an apple tree this will have to do. I think it is a lovely substitute for the orchard and a whole lot less work. No soup for you today.
