When I was a little girl we had a very messy plum tree and a crab apple tree. I loved hanging out in their branches conversing with the birds and a maybe fairy or two. I had a vivid imagination and the garden was my favorite place to play. I also developed a love hate relationship with the crab apple. I loved them. I still do. I could not stop at one or two or even three. My kid brain assumed because they were small I could consume a ton. I often had what my gran called crabby belly.
