Apple Blossoms, Apple Tree

Its a Blooming Spring!

'Prairifire'

When I last posted crabapple blossoms, I thought it would be the end of the season. Huge thunderstorms moved through, and I was sure the blossoms that had yet to open would be ruined. But when I went this morning to check on the early lilacs, many of the crabapples were continuing their spring show. And what a grand show it was.

Don’t ask why this lovely apple tree has a name that I have trouble spelling correctly. I want to add an ‘e’ to properly spell prairie, but that’s not the way it was labeled. I think it is one of my favorites though. The color is bright and the tree is blooming profusely. It’s not a large tree, but it still has quite a bit more growing to do.
