The Hollow Tree

In our side yard, we have a beautiful old orchard that is many decades old. Three pear trees, two apple trees, and a mulberry tree still bear fruit. This tree, though, is special. It's totally hollow, yet still throws these beautiful blossoms every spring, and delicious snow apples for fall picking.

When the triplets were 4, I took these pictures of them standing inside it's hollow trunk.

Now, 5 years later, I had them awkwardly climb back in to see how much they've grown.
Jacob,
Jason,
and Jordan happily obliged! And Jordan had me take this last one, which is a real hoot!
They want to continue the tradition yearly, even when they have to squat, which I think will be the case next spring!
