I was happy to see them growing back plenty of foliage, and thought that maybe next year we'll get the apples instead of the sheep.
You can imagine my surprise when the trees began to pop out in blossoms for a second time! Who knew they would flower again?! And not only that, but they have more blossoms this time then they did the first time.
Perhaps the trees think their lives are in danger, and need to reproduce more this time round? (Like the theory of running into your mango tree with a lawn mower to make it fruit). Or maybe they benefited from a vicious prune? Whatever the reason, I'm really excited that it's flowering again, and flowering better this time around too.
Whether or not we'll be the ones to enjoy the apples the second time around, is yet to be determined.
One thing is for sure - I won't be trusting the sheep with the apples again!
