Tree Blossoms for a Beautiful Bouquet

Yes, your trees needs those blossoms, especially if they are fruit bearing.  Taking a few sprigs from a decorative flowering tree (like our crabapple), however is just as delicious to smell as it is to look at.  (I found a few Siberian Iris blooms that likely won't last another day, and added them to the mix.  Iris is my favorite flower.)  Those of you with lilacs have my undying jealousy...

I'm no florist, and as the farmer will tell you, I don't even try to be.  My kitchen was smelling a bit musty, however, and this works much better than your standard air freshener or candle!

Happy Spring!

that is so pretty! I am hopeful that our lilacs will actually bloom this year. For the last 2 years we have gotten a last minute frost that has killed the buds before they could flower. . .

Frost sucks. I'm so happy that my blooms had a chance to show off some this year. Maybe we'll have apples, now!
