History of an apple tree

In November 2013, daughter Sally Hutt gave Jock an apple tree for his 80th birthday. As we can’t plant trees at our rented home, the gift was planted in their Northumberland garden.

The year passed, and one delicious apple ripened on that tree, Jock's first apple in situ which was duly wrapped in copious layers of tissue, posted, and arrived in France for Jock’s next birthday feast.

Today Sally posted this photograph, so it looks as though there might be fruit this year.

Restless Jo is following a challenge, 5 days, 5 photos, 5 stories  and invited me to join in.  This is my response.
