view from my window

crabapple tree from window

This was the view from my bathroom window last autumn. Cigar Man planted this Crabapple tree a few years ago when the house was new and yard was sterile. I didn’t think much about it then. Just another tree. Cigar Man is ALWAYS planting trees. But as it’s grown and changes from season to season, it’s become my favorite…

and Winter too.

It gives me pleasure from my window.

I love how you have photographed your crabapple tree so beautifully throughout the seasons. We have a large one in our backyard and we look forward to its blossoms every spring. I took a tour of your blog, and I enjoyed getting to know you a little. I will come back to visit again!
Blessings to you,

Beautiful images, Marsha. We had a crab apple at the farm, by the front porch. Yours is gorgeous.

There's nothing like a tree or shrub that provides four seasons of interest. Crabapples are also a favourite of many birds and that's a bonus.
I really enjoyed your mosaic.

Beautiful. We are trying to decide on a new tree for the front yard, I was not convinced that crab apple would be good, but your beautiful pictures have swayed me in that direction.

Isn't it nice to have edible fruit growing in your own yard - an extra treat in addition to the beauty it provides through each season!

It is pretty all year long, how wonderful to have such a beauty in front of your window. I will have to go to our local nursery now and see a Crabapple tree in person.
