Craig was unimpressed when I mentioned in passing I had forgotten to talk to Mum about the Crabapple for a little help with this post on Elaine’s Botanicals. “What about telling your readers that when you met your husband, the house he lived in had the most beautiful Crabapple tree in the garden?” I must have looked dubious and shrugged, “I remember biting into a crabapple in my teens” … ?!
I don’t know why, …
does anyone know why teenagers do anything!? He went on to inform me that the crabapple in the front yard of his house was the most beautiful he had ever seen, including in gardening books. Unfortunately it is not quite the right time of year yet and we do not have a photo. Will update when I can … Between you and me I think he was a little disappointed that its beauty had not made an impression on me. Sorry honey. Will have to make a trip to photograph it for him to make up. Elaine has completed her Crabapple in double running stitch, stem stitch, pistol stitch and french knots. Its beauty is not seasonal.
