On Crooked Creek had an over~abundance of trees
when we arrived here on this side of the Prairie 11 years ago.
The unfortunate part is most of the trees were Cedar.
I'm highly allergic to all evergreens. . .
One exception to the Cedar trees,
this Ornamental Plum Tree has to be my favorite!
This feminine, petite tree
resides at the edge of the Fairy Garden
and just North of the back deck On Crooked Creek.
Once the blossoms have disappeared for the Season,
rich purple hued leaves stay until Autumn each year.
A final soft pink blossom,
protected by a new branch,
clings fast as the winds threaten here On Crooked Creek.
Until next time. . .
On Crooked Creek will be joining
