A present not taken well care of will not bear fruit in future.

I was looking for a photo to post for Frank Jansen’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt “Future“. Weather had been really nice here for last couple of days and I was working in my garden to take care of various plants. Orange trees and apple tree are in full bloom. The apple tree is small and comparatively young. It also did not give us any fruits last year. As I was coming back from my morning walk with my dog, Skooby, I looked at the blooming apple tree in my front yard. I hoped that this year it will bear fruits. My wife had been talking to the gardener for some work to be done for a vegetable garden and she had talked with him regarding some needed care for the apple tree. As I was looking at the tree and the apple blooms, the one liner quote suddenly came to my mind. Orange blooms are from a California navel orange tree in our backyard. Couple of years back we had so many oranges that few branches broke because they could not bear the weight of the fruits. Last year there were barely a few on the same tree. My wife had been caring for that tree during last year and looking at the new blossoms, we are hopeful that it will bear fruits this year.
