Celebrate Spring with Flowering Crabapple Tree

Spent the morning out under the crab tree with my pup Olivia.  I had to take a photos to share with you the experience.  The bees love the bloom and the wind was lightly blowing through filling the garden with an amazing floral scent.  This tree was on our property when we purchased it back in 2003 and we enjoy its amazing blooms every spring.  Great memories of watching the kids walk down to the bus stop including the year they were in Junior High and I was ‘forbidden’ to walk with them to the stop.  I stood under the tree and took photos of my ‘big kids’ in their last days of school.

 

Grow Your Own Crab Tree

Trees are a great investment.  When planting this variety be sure to stop out at your local garden center to see what they have in stock.  Also keep in mind this tree needs 15-20 feet of space in full sun to grow.
