The Crab Apple

As we pass the mid-point of April, the "Royal Raindrops" Crab Apple is just starting to form its flower buds. I noticed this weekend that the clumps of baby buds are just pushing out of the leaf clusters. I am hoping for a much improved flowering show as compared to last year. It looks promising!

How funny! I just posted about the six Royal Raindrops crabapples that we planted this week! I thought the name was quite appropriate for our part of the country!

Look at how beautiful those leaves are--I am a sucker for burgundy in the garden!
