Crabapple Blossoms

Crab blossom time in Perfect
brings a fragrance to the air
brings the bees buzzing ‘round my hair.

Crab blossom time in Perfect
brings blooms, pink and white
brings soft breezes in the early night.

Crab blossom time in Perfect
brings grass growing green and sleek
brings out the mower, whirring twice a week.

Crab blossom time in Perfect
brings a happy smile to my sun-warmed face
brings a sense of wonder, the perfect time and place.

Beautiful blossoms really do bring smiles to faces. Love the pictures of your yard!

Shelly said...

Really lovely pictures, and a great poem. Enjoyed both!

Shark, thank you. Spring is a lovely time of year.

Vee, yard doesn't get the attention it deserves anymore, but we do what we can.

Shelly, it pleases me that you found enjoyment here.

And do you get apples too? I like versatility - beauty and utility!

Grace, yes, we do. Some years more than others. I pickle them or make jelly. In really abundant years, both.
