  1. I like the way you took this photo of a tall branch in two shots. I’ll have to remember to do the same thing when my giant Turk’s Turban blooms.

    Always Growing

  2. Nancy girl ! My favorite is the top picture .. funny how we zone in a particular picture .. it just strikes a chord some how .. I worked myself silly in the garden yesterday .. ouch ! LOL
    Hope the weather is still like Indian Summer there : )

  3. As much as I like the photos, I’m still struck by the title, Nancy. You could write a song for this:)

    Oh, my sweetheart asked me to bake him a pie
    I promised I would, sure enough, by and by;
    No cherry, no peaches, no rhubarb I’d buy…
    I’d wait for that crabapple sky.

    Chorus (altogether now):
    Crabapple sky, crabapple sky
    Naught else would be chosen, said I;
    I’d never bake cherries, nor peaches in pie —
    I’d wait for that Crabapple Sky.


    My flowering crabs didn’t bloom much this spring, but they are sporting some berries…and some blooms! Your crabapples look much healthier.
