"Apple Blossom Time: Heaviest blossoms in years grace the orchard of A.H. Deeks, 28886 Center Ridge Rd., Westlake, transforming his apple trees into giant bouquets. But, Deeks isn't too happy about this profusion of blooms. These trees bore no crop last year This might so weaken them that they never would recover and future crops would be inferior so Deeks is using chemicals to burn away part of the coming crop to save his orchard." -- photo verso.
