  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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 would love to hear from you . . .
