Late summer garden

Janey

By Janey


Late summer garden (Malus angustifolia (Southern Crab)

We have sun this afternoon, which makes it feel more like late summer than early autumn...:))
Butterball Malus is beginning to colour up. I've promised it to my daughter as I haven't room for it here and it does need to be in the ground..

Haha Julia...Thank you. My friend brought me Welsh Barra brith from St David's, so you would feel right at home!..:))

A really charming area of your garden, Janey. Love the mix of green planting and pretty colourful flowers. Looks a nice and private area to sit and enjoy a drink or 2..

Such an attractive corner ... but will you miss your Butterball Malus ?

Thank you Klahanie..:)

I do like the table and chairs much better Sheila after I painted them in ebony, I remember your garden seat..
I'm happy for Katherine to have the little tree, and it's struggling in the tub. We'll plant it during winter...X

Such a lovely Crab apple ... just what I am looking for! Yellow fruits so colour blind OH sees them better than the red or deep purple ones. Been away for a few days so will reply to your PM soon ... :o)

I'm sure your Daughter will be thrilled to have your lovely tree,Janey,and you will enjoy deciding what else to take it's place, in what looks like a wooden Barrel ? I love the colour of your table and chairs too.They will definitely have been well used during the lovely summer,and according to the forecast for the next few days,it's not over yet :o) .Thank you for your PM, I will be in touch later xxx

Lovely looking Crab Apple. Janey! :)

Hi Shirley, it would be a fabulous tree planted in the garden, you will love having one, fabulous flowers in spring then these peachy/gold baubles for winter, blackbirds love them! Hope you enjoyed your few days away..:))

It is a wooden barrel Sandra, dropping to bits really! Yes, we've had a fabulous day today haven't we, in fact I put another coat of ronseal on the table and chairs!

Thanks Balc, your balcony will be loving this sun..:))

Janey, the two varieties we have looked for are 'Butterball' or 'Golden Hornet' without success so far. Visited an arboretum this morning, a long row of Malus but all with red or plum colour fruits so came home with no tree.

PM just sent ... :o)

Ooh, I'll have a read Shirley..:))

Really, that's a shame. i did have Red Sentinel which had fabulous fruits, but gave that to a friend a few years ago.
Both crab apples were from Morrisons about 10 years ago..

The ones we have seen are anything from £40 to £50 ... :o(

Goodness, they are crab apples, lovely but hardly rare!

15 Sep, 2020

 

I am reluctant to buy one on-line, even though some suppliers have them cheaper, as I like to see what I'm paying for!

15 Sep, 2020

 

I agree Shirley especially as the prices are high.
I always wished I'd planted a prunus autumnalis. very pretty open shape with snow flake flowers late autumn and over winter. I helped Mum plant one in her front garden and it always looked stunning..

I have only just seen this. What a beautiful spot it is and I love everything about it. Lovely autumn colours all around you - enjoy the next cup of coffee out there!

Aw thank you Wildrose...I certainly will..:)) just a bit misley today, could be sea fret coming up the Humber, hopefully burn off by this afternoon.. Hope you have the sun.

Janey, I just viewed some images of the Prunus, it looks to have gorgeous blossom!

16 Sep, 2020

 

Yes, it's a lovely small garden tree. I did notice with Mum's, there were often flowers at odd times too, and it had pretty Autumn colour...

Lovely ... :o))
