We purchased this home on June 24, 2005, so we missed seeing our crabapple tree bloom that year. In 2006 and 2007, the tree bloomed and the winds blew and took the blossoms away as quickly as they came. After the blossoms are gone, the tree is not very attractive. Last year I got outside with my camera to take a few pictures so we could remember how beautiful the tree can be, and I am so glad I did.
This year, a few little blossoms came out, then we had frost. That was the end of the blossoms for our tree this year. I am very disappointed that I didn't get to sit in my livingroom window and enjoy my beautiful tree. I am hoping for a better display next year.
