nine years of crab apple season
i’ve said it before…i think we have as many crabapple blossoms in minnesota as japan has cherry blossoms. we were simply a little bit more casual about how and where our pink, spring explosions were planted.
crab apple blossoms have just begun to open here. i gathered a few of the very first ones today. spring crabapple blossoms are the definition of excess and joyful abundance. every year i wrestle with how to convey the utter exuberance of the season in the STILL style, and i fall short. perhaps STILL and excessive abundance are oxymorons, and i should quit hitting my head against the wall. lucky for you, i have a very thick skull, so i will keep trying to capture this joyful abundance. STILL-like.
