We have an apple tree in our backyard. It blooms quite well but rarely makes many apples because it doesn't get enough sun and it lacks a pollinator tree nearby. I think of it as my summer bird feeder as it always has a variety of bugs and caterpillars chewing away on its leaves, and the birds like to come and see what they can snack on.
Usually the blossoms have quite a bit of pink on them but this year they are almost all white. I suppose that has to do with the weather as I have noticed that other apple trees in the area have similarly white blossoms this spring.
I guess we have repurposed our tree - it is not a supplier of fruit, but a "destination" for the birds.
