They aren't crab apples! You should see the BIG ones we grow in the Mother Country, makes yours look like cherries. Ha!
These are about the size of cherries!
Just pulling your leg. . .
I thought I felt something...ha.
With a view like that it is a pleasure to do the dishes . . :)
Yes, so true! And a dishwasher helps a lot, too!
Eddie may try with all his might,but I was first tonight.He cannot outwit me now,That is something I wont allow.
Late he was to the showso the teasing will go and go!Pat will like your rhyming, too!Bet he mentions it at my zoo!
Oh I see we're talking in rhymeWell gee, let's all have a swell time.I did not know Keith was a poetSuch talent and we didnt know it.Yes I was late to Betsy's showWhile Keith got first and began to crow.I was talking to a very nice bloggerAs he crept in fast, just like a joggerI think we have caught a bug from Pat'cause we've started rhyming tit for tatSoon we shall all start to do itWe'll all be poets before we knew it . . lolPat I wonder did you sneeze?We've caught the bug just like a breezeWe're writing words which all rhymeI'd better go ~ my is that the time? LOL
My, you're giving Pat a run for his money!Just wait until he sees this, honey!He's bound to rhyme longer than youfor he doesn't like anyone to outdo!Spreading a rhyming germ through a sneeze,oh my germ ocd is not pleased!That cat named Hattneeds to wear a surgical mask!
A run for my money?Lol that is kinda funnyWouldn't one have to have money first?Might be a short running burstBut I will not let him winCan't do me inAs the cat sends out an army of fleasLeaving bites on many kneesThen you get the germIn the rhymes will wormEven if you have to make up a fake termWhile out getting a permHey, you never knowSome people like to give that a goMaybe with a ho ho hoI have now strayed thoughWhat else is new?Plenty in viewIs it new if it is old?Maybe just festers like moldThat would stinkMaybe get a winkThen the mold killer would winDo every human inDeath by moldMy story has been toldThe why and what and howWould just make people have a cowDon't push too hard thoughJust thought I'd let you knowAnd then when you hear the mooI guess that would be something newFull circle I'm comeMight think I'm drunk by someBut liquor is just the pitsI gives me the umm shlitsSee, a made up wordHow absurdBut have to stay PGOr Betsy might scold meThink I'm through yet?Might be a safe bet.Or really notI haven't go to the plotThe absence of a plot is the plotAnd now you've been taughtI will now go roll in the grassWith my ever so little rhyming assWhoops, let it slipThat came from the hipBut you saw it comingOkay to do a little outside of PG slumming
I think you've left Eddie speechlessalthough much of this was meaningless,but you can go on and onfrom sunset until dawn.And I knew you'd take the bait.Was never one to hatea little challenge to chime on longerthan any old rhyme-monger.lol....
lol nonsense wins the dayAt least at my run on rhyming bay
Betsy my dear, you called me honey,I felt so good, my head's gone funny . . . lolI think you are right I will cannot win'Cause Pat would think that a huge sinBesides you're five hours ahead of meSo if I write a sonnet I'm sure you'll agreePat would stay up to write one biggerWhile I sleep and then he'd snigger.Victory is mine, he would sayAs he wrote more lines later todayUnless Suza wants to have a goAnd gets some verses in a row.I think you wrote a lovely rhymeIambic beat in perfect time.And Keith did not do too bad eitherBut he can't compete with Pat, neitherHe's gone to rest his weary headAnd now is resting in his bed.Which is where I ought to beIn land of nod, tucked up safely.Night and Sweet Dreams . . . :) lol
Quite a cute little poem from youas you write with the moon in full view!Better not stay up too latelet the sand man partake.Pat will beat us all eventuallybecause it all comes to him naturally!
haha well I went to watch TVAnd then sleep in the heat at my seaSo yours stayed for a whileNow I can go the rhyming mileOut it just flowsWhichever way the wind blowsSuza can playEven #1 many a dayHank may not like thatRuining his statAs does BlueBut that you knewWhat don't you know?Which way the wind will blow?I said that twiceHow niceOr how meanRepeat on the screenWho needs that?Not the catCould do the hokey pokeyOr just give an okie dokey Spell check hates thatThinks I'm a dingbatIt may be rightBut the cat has biteSo whatever worksCrazy has its perksNow I'm throughLike a kangarooI'll bounce awayAnd be on my way
We were commenting on each other's blog at the same timeSeems like we should call 'jinx' as we type out the rhyme!
that is a lovely view when washing dishes!!!!!
Isn't it? A bird feeder hangs in that tree, too.....always something fun to see.
What a great view!But I don't see the faucet?
lol...oh, don't worry! It's still there!
So your feet weren't in the sinkAs you got a peek outside your rink? lol
My feet were planted firmly on the floor.No need for neighbors to peak through windows or doors.Didn't see anyone snooping about.He learned his lesson without a doubt!
Oh my goodness I see the Eddie and Pat wars are on in full swing.....HaHa...makes for fun reading....Oh yes....the crab apples....I almost forgot i got carried away with the word battle. HaHaIt is a most lovely view. Sending hugs.
They are and they haven't stopped yet! haha...They do make this very fun!
Nice photo, Betsy. I can't wait to be in my kitchen looking out the window in the actual house. Looking out the window from the second floor doesn't quite cut it. Thanks so much for the 'penny' tip. haha!
Yes, I know what you mean....and the views will have an entirely different look for you! You still have so much to look forward to!
I am thinking that my mom made jelly out of them back when I was a kid.
yes...very common! I only tried it once but it was good!
Nice looking crab apples. Do you do anything with them?? Jellies? Jams? Preserves? Or just simply let them brighten up your view?
I did make jelly once...it was a beautiful clear pink! Had a very mild taste, too. I usually just leave them for the birds!
Bet your birdies have a feast. I haven't had crab apple jelly in years, but I remember enjoying it. Looks like a rhyming fest above!
The Starlings usually swoop in a few times and eat them all in the winter! Fun to watch!
Crab apples? Already.....geesh...where did Summer go?Cheers!Linda :o)
One more month to enjoy!
Seems like fall is just around the corner!!Jane x
30 days and counting!
Crabby Appleton... here Not sure why I thought of him.Summer is counting down. I am sad to admit it, but on the other side comes fall and I like that very much:0)
I am sad to admit the end of summer, not the arrival of fall.
So you like summer or fall better?
Your favorite day of the week, Monday! That is a lovely view you have Betsy. I love the end of summer, Autumn maybe better but only if the Autumn is bright blue sky, sun and chilly, that is my fav! Then all the colours, wow! My son has his bday in October and I love to decorate for the fall bday parties :-) what on Earth got me talking about Autumn now ... haha! Have a lovely week!
haha...just as I was reading your comment, the mister walked by and said, "It's Monday...your favorite day of the week!" :)Yes, a fresh day...fresh new week...and a little quiet around here after the weekend! Yes, I love autumn, too....no season has those blue, blue skies! The end of summer is lovely, too....kind of the best of summer with a hint of fall in it.
Hi Betsy - I think summer stopped here yesterday - bucketing with rain today and for the rest of the week - still we all need rain, as do the fruit and veg and panting birds ... Wonderful place to see the seasons change as the crab apple tree delivers its year for us ... cheers Hilary
Oh, I'm sure summer will reappear....it's only 2/3rd over! haha. And it's always nice to get rain when you need it...we've had a good amount this summer and it's been wonderful how green everything has been. A bit too much for my garden, but still hard to complain.
Never seen crab apples..looks beautiful..
