Crabapple Jelly, Anyone?
Costco was selling crabapple trees this week, and I couldn't resist getting a couple of them. Not only are the blossoms both beautiful and fragrant, and not only can you harvest crabapples for jelly in the fall, but they attract the local birds too. One of them's gone up on the NW corner of our property, and looks quite smashing if I do say so myself. (Btw, it's taken the spot of a beautiful Phormium (New Zealand Flax) plant that was devastated by all our snow this winter, and has since moved on to greener pastures at the composting facility.)
