Back in May, I thought “what in the world is this outrageous orange glob hanging from this cedar tree?” Upon closer inspection, I noticed the tree held more of these gelatinous orange mysteries. Out came my camera.
Later, I learned it was called cedar apple rust and it may look like this after the first spring rain. I am no botanist, but as I understand it, cedar apple rust is a fungus that
alternates between two host plants, the eastern red cedar and the apple tree. Usually, the cedar tree is located near an orchard but don’t know of any near this tree. I think fungicides are used to break the disease cycle and protect the apple crop.
So, I learned something new! How about you?

It’s not too late to join in the fun!
Do you remember Dreamsicles? This bite-size orange flavored candy tastes like a sweeter version of the Dreamsicles I loved as a kid!
I found the candy confection at a nearby family run store. The store is called Jamison’s and the country store (not to be confused with the Country Market posted about previously) is located at the family orchard. I also bought homemade ginger rock candy that was earthy and sweet. I am looking forward to going there again to buy more candy! There are so many flavors to choose from that the decision won’t be easy!
Do you have a sweet tooth?
Beespeak- it’s better to be sweet than bitter
This is my entry for JNW’s Color Your World Challenge-apricot.
Warm orange flows across the glow of the evening sky to the smile of a tasty goldfish!
Perky orange petals take bloom. Swirls of orange stir the mix. Deep orange grounds garden clogs and also frees dreams of flip flops in the sand.
I hope you enjoy this medley of photos posted in response to the prompt to post multiple photos with a pop of orange.
