I've known for a while now that the month of June was going to be a tough one.
My dad would have had his 63rd birthday last week...only a few days earlier than Father's day.
So I've had in my mind for a while now, that I wanted to plant a tree on Father's Day in his memory.
I knew I wanted a tree that would bloom flowers in the spring...and that was beautiful and bring lots of happiness.
So I finally found a beautiful Coralburst Crabapple!
It will bloom white and pink, or "coral" flowers in the spring...and it has such a fun name! I get happy when I say it....go ahead, say it...."coralburst crabapple"! :)
It's just a baby right now...I can't wait to see it bloom and grow every year.
Happy Father's Day, Dad! I know you're shining over this little tree and our home! :)
