Crabapples!








Thanks to an AWESOME suggestion from a geocaching friend, we headed out to look at crabapple trees yesterday. The smell, the colors, everything was AMAZING! I had been to this particular place at least 30 times over the years but never during flowering season. How many are there? "In all, the campus and its Secrest Arboretum are home to around 800 crabapple trees of some 300 different kinds". Definitely a must see!

Oh my, I would just want to be like a drunk cat and roll around in those trees, how beautiful can ya get! I am in the Apple Capital of the World (Wenatchee) and darn near the Pear capital too. The pear orchards that blanket the hillside are killin' me! It looks like a faint green-white snow.
