our crab apple tree

crab apple blossom up close

what used to be a wretched and evil looking crab apple tree, with branches growing in all directions and suckers sprouting from the base and all over the trunk, quite literally blossomed into a showy spring tree! for the past 2 weeks it has been, hands down, the prettiest tree on our street.

most of the blossoms fell off earlier this week with the wind storms, but andre's trimming work has paid off and our crab apple tree that looked like something from a tim burton movie now has a beautiful silhouette. the blossoms were SO fragrant too.

Good heavens, how domestic!

How does such a pretty tree bear such awful fruit?

So very pretty.. I've just watched the trees in my neighbourhood go from naked branches to full bloom and it's lovely (although very good at inducing hayfever!)
