All for beauty.

Malus ioensis 'Plena' - Betchel's Flowering Crabapple. Utterly beautiful! In this part of the garden I am trying to have only fruit trees that are useful - i.e. they give fruit! "Plena" is so lovely flowering here with white foxgloves that the usefulness is all in the beauty. I am looking forward to Autumn though to see if the crab apples are enough to add to a rose hip and crab apple jam to satisfy my thrifty housewife inclinations.

Please remember to be kind, it's a nicer way to live and grow in the garden.
