Crabapple blossoms . . . yeah, in September!

13 posts in this topic

Someone forgot to tell the Hopa crabapple tree in our back yard that May, not September, is the time it's supposed to flower. Definitely been a strange summer. We just found these blossoms today. confusedconfused

Maybe we're gonna get a "do over"!!! I'd be happy to try again smile

Lovely blossoms, no matter what month it is!

Wow! That's amazing. But if we get a do-over can we make it 50 degree highs and low humidity? Please?

Uh, umm, wierd. That pretty much explains the summer we have had. Cool shots though Steve. I like the first one better than the second. Just has more pop to it.

Thanks, folks. Tom, they both were basically documentary grab shots, and I took the second one to show the strangeness of ripe crabapples in the same frame as the blossoms. smilesmile

I didn't mean to come off as the shots were wierd, but rather that the tree was blossoming right next to the ripening crab apples. Sorry if that was how you took it, not the intent at all. Dang interweb misunderstandings.

It has been a strange summer all around. This is just one more example of it. Makes me wonder what this winter has in store for surprises. Thanks for posting this, Steve!

If the blossoms got pollinated you should have fresh apples in January. smile

You know, I bet they did. The tree is right next to a stand of black oil sunflower blossoms, and the bees have been buzzing around those sunflowers. gringrin

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
