While picking pacific crabapples, I smacked myself in the face over the eye with a tree branch. No eyeball injury, just feel very bruised.

i sometimes get clawed at by some trees i have to mow under and of course i always tell myself i should get the loppers out and remove those limbs, but yet i never do...

O crabapple are the size of grapes?

Smaller than most table grapes. 1/4 to 1/2 inch. They grow in clusters. It's one of the 3 native wild North American crabapple species. Most people think of European crabapples when you say crabapple. Those are huge compared to the natives here.

You should climb one now. Well, get a ladder leaned to it, go up the ladder and take a selfies. We Are not going to know,:lol:

Up early with pain in chest. Hub was not able to put new auto door. Too small for rouen ducks. So, have to open myself. It was sprinkling when I went.
Hope I can get a break in the rain so at least I can pick those tomatoes
