Crab Apple Blooms

I have been watching the blooms on this crab apple tree all week but couldn't seem to get the time to take picture. So I made myself stop, get the camera and head out the door. 

Take a look:
I love the pink blooms on the tree. Did you know that the crab apple is the most popular of the spring-flowing trees in the North and Midwest.

The sky is a beautiful blue today and the clouds aren't heavy yet but I think some storms on are the way again. Sure hope they miss us!

Hope you enjoyed the blooms as much as I have - Judy.

  6. Hi Judy,

    These are GORGEOUS photos! The pink blossoms look so pretty against the background of blue sky. We had a pink crab apple tree in the yard of our first home. It was spectacular in spring, and I still miss it. When the crab apples fell, they were a bit messy, though. Do you make crab apple jelly with yours?

    Visiting from Pink Saturday. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures and have a great weekend!
