Festival "Blossoming of Seversii apple tree."

Sivers apple tree in Dzungarskiy Alatau.

“All covered in snow, curly, fragrant,
All of you are buzzing with a blissful ringing
Bees and wasps, envious and evil...
Are you getting old, dear friend?
No problem. Will there be something like this?
Others have a young old age!”
