Inspired by Crabapples
This quick splash and splatter was inspired by a photo I took earlier this fall of our crabapple tree --- today, it's bare of both leaves and fruit ... one of the earliest trees to become bare on our property .... I know that the drought has contributed to this, but boy ...! I was hoping that the apples would have ripened before falling so I could make them into one of my husband's favorite jams -- but it wasn't to be this year.
We finished planting all 1,200 bulbs yesterday, and yes, I am a mighty tired lady today -- but the job is done and I can't wait until spring to see the colors!!!
Cool morning today -- with frost in our North Carolina mountains ....sweatshirt weather already!
I'm off to an early morning meeting -- hope your day is terrific!
