I don't think they are even remotely related to apples. They get round fruits on them but they don't really look like apples. My grandma said that she used to eat them, so my cousin and I tried one. As I recall, it tasted kind of like a green pepper, but not so good. Maybe the one we tried wasn't ripe.

Love your pictures. So many flowers I have never seen before. The mountain phacelia looks alien to me.
I did recognize the larkspur . I do grow them in my garden. The seed originally came from a plant I found along the road at my sisters.
Beautiful flowers, Kelli. I wonder if larkspurs are wildflowers or have just found their way to the wilds by way of the birds, etc. That creek picture made me want to just wade right in. What a relaxing place to sit and forget the cares of the world for a while.
Cajun, we used to call them Maypops. I always thought of the pop we always enjoyed hearing as kids when we stepped on them as being part of why they were called that. Probably not however. We were told that they were good to eat when they got totally ripe but I didn't like them even then.
