Crabapple tree in my neighbor’s yard
For years I had a spectacular crabapple in my yard. I still have several but the best specimen is across the street from my house. My grandmother always made crabapple jelly each fall.
A Hawthorne blooming in my yard
Hawthorns produce small red berries that decorate the British queen’s table every Christmas. For centuries the berries have been used to treat heart patients.
A tired old apple tree bravely tries to bloom and bear fruit.
It has been in my yard since we moved here 39 years ago. It was a very old apple three then.
