In my garden I have a little crab-apple tree
who delights me each Spring me with the prettiest blossoms.
Her real name is Malus-Ioensis-Plena but I think
the common name of crab-apple is much nicer.
I let her grow where she will
no chopping back hard to produce bigger and better blooms
no trimming to clear the pathway
she is the queen of my garden and for one week every year
she repays me with the softest most fragile blossoms laden with busy bees
