What kind of tree was the Snow Queen again?

I know you've all read Anne of Green Gables. I think it might have been a cherry tree. My little apple tree is blooming her heart out this year. It's such a spindly little tree, just 3-4 years old, and last year produced about a dozen apples --which amazed me. I got up early this morning, (you can see it's just past dawn in the picture) and this sweet tree was putting everything she had into her blossoms. We'll have to really thin them out this year. I love that. My other trees have all battled aphids and are still trying to recover. Nice to see something thriving.
