apple blossom time—in August?


This ornamental apple tree is glorious in the Spring, loaded with blossoms.   But as Fall approaches, for some reason, the leaves fade and die leaving the branches bare until after Winter.

These blossoms popped out after Monday’s eclipse of the Sun.   I have no idea why, but I heard NASA or some other agency has requested reports of strange things happening…this qualifies.     Also, my daughter’s blue Hydrangea turned purple (she lives next door.)  My Lantana turned from pink to purple earlier in this Summer.  (I realize that Hydrangeas do change color according to specific factors in the soil or whatever.)
