Every year when the trees in my Crabapple allée start to bloom I try to get a good picture of them...which so far hasn't happened.
This year was no different, I just can't seem to capture how pretty they look, especially in the morning when the sun is coming up. This is the closest I have come...
There are four trees is a row along side the driveway. A curved gravel path winds through them with the pink, old china rose Hermosa planted at intervals between each tree.
At the base of each tree I have planted Santa Barbara daisies and a very vigorous pink geranium that I don't remember the name of. Clipped Boxwoods frame both the beginning and the end of the path.
Crabapples are lovely little trees offering something to enjoy year around: spring boom; summer foliage; color in the fall, and in winter, fruit for the birds. Because their branches are so malleable I often cut them to make wreaths.
Before the path starts to the right of the picture above, under a Crepe Myrtle tree that provides summer color I have this grouping of birdhouses.
Can you ever have enough birdhouses in a garden? As soon as I finish the powder room project I want to build a couple of new birdhouses. I have never made them before but I think it would be fun to try.
Thank you for visiting.
