I was looking at this and thinking, it seems like ages since I posted pictures of crab blossom, so I went back to check how long ago.....

9th April! Isnt just amazing how much our seasons vary?

Best wishes,

We're about two weeks ahead of you here in the Valley, Chey. Our blooms are long gone and the tree just off the balcony is at its very greenest right now...the heat and drought always make it lose some leaves by mid-summer. But it, too, forms tiny little apples that are a gorgeous burgundy in the fall, even though they're only the size of a cherry. :)
