About That Tree

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I showed you the photo of my flowering crabapple tree? And I mentioned that it looked good from the angle I showed you? Here’s the photo in case you forgot:

Well, some of you, <cough>Kym<cough>Bonny<cough> asked what I meant. Today, I’m coming clean. I showed you the view of the tree from my deck. This is the view from the other side:

And this is a side view, showing the gorgeous flowering part on the left and the . . . errrr . . . rather flat side on the right.

We planted this tree over 20 years ago, it was a Mother’s Day gift from the kids and Dale. Obviously we did not choose a great place to put it; it’s overshadowed by a huge black walnut tree on the right and as such it has grown slowly and lopsided.

Live and learn, right? Or . . . laugh it off!

  1. Poor little crabapple, bullied by that black walnut! It’s not his/her (I don’t know the proper crabapple pronouns) fault, and Kym and Patty are right!

  2. It’s beautiful as is! Nature does what nature will do, and flowers are magical even if they’re a little bit lopsided. XO

  3. Laugh it off and enjoy the view from the deck. It has a beautiful side, for sure.

  4. It’s a gorgeous tree from all the sides. I think it’s wonderful that the tree figured out a way to thrive in spite of the shade cast by that bigger tree. Seems like a good lesson for us humans in that!

  5. It’s beautiful! And so full of flowers!!

    We have an ash tree like that… it grew faster than expected and/or was planted a bit too close to the one that we knew would eventually have to come down (or we didn’t take the old tree down soon enough). It’s a bit lopsided! One of the benefits, though, is that most of the branches are away from the house.
