Last Spring, which seems like just a few days ago, I posted a picture of my crab apple tree in bloom. I complained that it was the only time of the year that I liked the tree because it lost its leaves and became very ugly by the middle of the Summer.
As all good things do, the tree has gone on this year to prove me a liar. Here it is, September, and it still has its leaves, and, a bountiful crop of crab apples, to boot. We had an unusually wet summer, and I think that may have had something to do with it. All I can say is that the deer are going to have good eating, once those things begin to fall.
