My crabapple tree blooming for possibly it's last spring. Every spring, another limb doesn't emerge from winter... soon there will be nothing left. It is old and gnarled; half of it is gone already. It makes me sad to think of it's eventual demise, but I'm rejoicing in it's flowers this spring.

Wonderful spring flowers! Ours aren't ready to bloom yet, but it's exciting just to see something green after all the snow and cold.

Beautiful! Our grape hyacinth and daffodils are just starting to come up too.. I love the picture of your crabapple- it's too bad this might be the last year...

Everything looks so beautiful. I can't believe Spring is here again already. I hope the tree holds out longer. :(

I see a lot of familiar faces from my own garden. We even have a crabapple tree, too! I think ours is in decent health. It houses our bird feeder and the birds absolutely adore it!

The flowers and colors are beautiful. I'll be glad when spring finally get to New England!
