Flowering crabapple and Indigo Bunting at Havenwood

 Pretty photos of our old crabapple trees in the rain... and with a vibrant winged visitor...


An indigo bunting I was just able to catch on film before it flew... more info here on this pretty bird.
Here is a great little video of the indigo bunting singing... (Click to WMG to see video from email).



Have a great weekend!

  1. It would make a vibrant fabric for a pretty summer dress.

    1. Yes it would, Esther!

  2. Do you know what colour apples your trees produce? I have yellow (which only stays on the tree a few weeks so I use for crab apple jelly) and red which last all winter and beyond.

    1. Since we moved in after Thanksgiving, they were long gone. One more thing to look forward to this year :)

  3. What a lovely color of flowers. Mature crabapple trees are something I'm looking forward too - enjoy yours for me while I wait!

  4. Hi Julie: Loved the video! We had indigo buntings at our feeder for the first time this year, but I haven't seen them for a while. They must be finding enough food naturally now. I think I can still hear them, but they're kind of shy. Don't you just love the Crabapples? Ours have finished blooming now, but they were so beautiful. By the way, thanks for your words of encouragement about our eventual move. And I apologize for not stopping by recently. For some reason your feed wasn't showing up in my "favorites" list, so I've fixed it! I don't want to miss anymore of your posts!
