Lovely shot – flowers, blue sky and clouds. I suppose I can’t harvest crabapple from the local park, so it’s no use asking for the recipe. Your allusion to John Downie mystifies this Aussie and Google directs me to doctors on LinkedIn. Please illuminate and forgive my ignorance!
I don’t know the gentleman either but he must have had first bite of the apple! 🙂
My head is still somewhere over the English Channel I think, Gilly. I’d quite forgotten about Thursday haikus. Thank you for the beautiful reminder.
I presume that gentleman put his name to a variety of crabapple?
Who is this mystery man, Gilly? Crabapple jelly sounds as though it should be tart and tangy?
Beautiful blossoms promise tasty jelly. It is amazing that fruit will come.
The scent of the flowers, the taste and joy of taste the jelly is overwhelmingly present. Sigh. ❤
Now I am going to find out who he is.
Aha, John Downie is a type of crab apple tree. I never had sweet crab apple jelly. All I know about crab apples are their droppings of clutter on the lawn. Great pick and haiku.
I’d like to get me a crab apple tree…
I have never had sweet crab apple jelly either. Love the crab apple flowers. 🙂 Will read about John Downie.
