THE APPLE BLOSSOM
To you, sweet perfumed, soft
colored, delicate harbinger of a
fruitful autumn, ye lovely bloom
of the apple trees, the children
of earth chant welcome in the
sunshine of early spring. In the
faint blush of your beauty the
world beholds the babyhood of
the most varied, the most de
lightful, the most useful, the
most diverse of all the fruits
which providence has bequeathed
to man. There is no production
of tropic lands, nor among the
myriad gifts to the tones which
a temperate sun, in semi-tropic
nurture, warms to natural repro
duction, which rivals the apples
of the northern lands. In tex
ture, in flavor, in coloring, in
bountiful yield and infinite
variety, the apple surpanses in
use and value all other fruition
of earth upon the trees. There
fore in this season of nature's
conception, the flowers which
promise red and russet orchards
when the morning frosts shall
come in eaWy fall, delight the
quicken the heart of
man with beauty and
of plenty. Pendleton
