Little Julie and the Crabapple Tree (American Girl Mini Julie doll)



One spring morning, beautiful little Julie decided to take a stroll through the dandelions to see what new things were growing.   Being at nearly ground level, she found it exceptionally easy to spot new blossums and sprouts.


As she meandered along, lost in her thoughts, she felt a sudden inspiration to see if she could climb up the freshly blossomed crabapple tree across the lawn!


It took her nearly all morning, but she finally made it across the lawn to the tree. 


Without ropes or climbing gear, she surprisingly clawed her way up the bark until she found a nice branch to perch on. Girls from the 70s are tough, you know. :)


As she sat and caught her breath, she was taken aback by what a different and beautiful world it was up here!  The greens, whites and pinks were so vibrant and like nothing she'd seen before on the ground.


The fragrance of the flowers was heavenly.  Little Julie was glad she took the effort to follow her impulses and climb up that big tree as this was a day she would always remember.


I hope you are all enjoying the spring blossoms where ever you are (as I am sure my area is probably one of the last to get them!!)

Little Julie is a mini American girl Julie Albright doll.

  2. So cute! Our crabapple tree is officially dead, not a bloom or bud (or anything!) on it. Now we are trying to figure out what to put in it's place.

    1. Oh man, that's a shame! Everything seemed to bloom late this year...I kept waiting and waiting, lol. It's been a weird winter/spring and I think that affected them a lot. I hope you find something good to replace it with. :)

  5. I love these photos! Our blooming trees bloomed at the beginning of April! Now all the roses are blooming. Even the lilac trees are long finished. And I live in Vancouver BC in Canada! We had 90 F heat at the beginning of April. But if we didn't have the weather to talk about, we would be bored. LOL I love little Julie; she is quite an adventurer.

  8. Hey Farrah Lily! The HFHG Dolls will be rereleased later this year! The first dolls to be rereleased are Dell, Consuelo, Nahji, and Rahel. Out of these, the only one I do not have yet is Rahel. Regarding the release date for the other dolls, like Tipi or Lilian, they have no information yet. As of now, they don't have an exact relaunch date, I think probably October in time for UN Day. Feeling excited, Farrah Lily?
