Snow?

Snowing?


Nope! Just a bunch a Crab Apple Trees -



How did such a pretty tree get such a crabby name?
Perhaps it is because of it's allergy inducing powers?
Regardless - they are very nice to look at.

Gorgeous pictures. I love crab apple trees. The only that grow here have a touch of pink in the middle of the now white flowers. Just lovely. There's always allergy shots!

They are beautiful. I wonder if it's b/c of the "fruit" it drops...not so tasty although I've never tried one.
