Under the Apple Tree

Melissa Blue Fine Art


One of my favorite things in spring is when the crabapples burst into bloom. I wish it could last forever! When my neighbor’s tree is done it showers my car with pink petals, like a benediction.

  1. Lovely!! 🙂

  2. We have crabapples lining our street and I always love the blooms when they open. Such a beautiful, bright and uplifting scene, Melissa! 🙂

    1. Thank you Pete!

  3. I love the light in this one. It makes me feel hopeful.

    1. I’m so glad! Thank you.

  4. It’s a lovely painting, Melissa. When I was a kid, we had crabapple trees. On a good year, they’d release their petals all at once, and we always called it a petal-blizzard.

    Beyond that, I’m old enough to remember this song when it still was playing live on the radio.

    1. Thank you, Linda. I appreciate that. I’m a classic film and music buff, and this was exactly what was running through my head when I chose the title. Thank you for the link ~ I thoroughly enjoyed hearing it again!

  5. Beautiful. I love the crab apple blossom but I love the crab apples even more.

    1. Do you? I confess I’ve never tried one!

      1. It’s a taste experience! I like sour fruit. 🙂

      2. HMMM…. 🙂

    2. Following Philippine tradition, Eve is accustomed to eating green papayas and green mangos. I follow American tradition and go for the ripe fruit.

      1. I go with Eve. Green is great. 🙂

      2. You’ve created a catchy slogan.

  6. We had a crabapple tree behind the house I grew up in. I remember its fruit but don’t think any of us ever sampled it.

  7. I suppose they are a bit of a cliche around here but I don’t care. I love them but not for their fruit. We have a lot of edible apple trees, too, and those I eat.

  8. I feel fresh. Cheerful. And romantic! 🙂

  9. I love the vivid colours in this painting. It gives it a surreal note, a lovely bench guarding a special spot in an Earthly garden of Eden. So inviting <3

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comment!

      1. It is well deserved 🙂 you paint beautifully!
