There are several Crab Apple trees on the streets where I ride and they are just stunningly beautiful this week. Sadly the blossoms are over far too quickly, but in the meantime, if you take a moment to stop and look, they're worth looking at! All the vibrant shades of pink that you can imagine.
This is the tree with a gorgeous ring of bright yellow Daffodils earlier in the spring.
Down a couple of blocks and around a corner is this one, a lighter shade of pink.
These blossoms are always a cheerful sight this time of year.ReplyDelete
Just gorgeous shades of my favorite color! Wonderful shots, thanks for sharing them with me. :-)ReplyDelete
The grab apple blossoms are beautiful. There are a few redbud around here and they are so pretty. I love their heart shaped leaves too.ReplyDelete
I'm seeing more and more Redbuds in the city. Global warming I guess. The heat finished off the crabapple blossoms this week.ReplyDelete
I wonder how someone long ago looking at a beautiful apple tree like that had the heart to call it a crab. There is nothing crabby about those beautiful Spring colors at all.ReplyDelete
Lilacs are blooming profusely here and the fragrance is intoxicating!ReplyDelete
Blossoms are so wonderful and you have a very good showing around your place.ReplyDelete
Beautiful trees, we constantly have redbud seedlings growing beneath our redbud.ReplyDelete
Several of my neighbour's have flowering crabapple trees, as well as apple (likely Morden) - all in bloom this week. I so enjoy the scent of these flowers and am sad when the petals start to fall.ReplyDelete
Beautiful blossoms! Yes when the trees bloom here, it never seems to last long enough.ReplyDelete
GORGEOUS!!!! these trees certainly do not bloom long enough but we sure do appreciate them while they are blooming!! this spring has been the best after our long year of COVID!! so good you are getting out, soon it may be too hot!!ReplyDelete
Just a week but a glorious one it is when they are in bloom.ReplyDelete
It's an awful pun, but your surrounding neighborhood is certainly "in the pink" these days with all those lovely flowing trees.ReplyDelete
whoops meant to say "flowering" trees...speel check didn't anticipate what I meant :-(ReplyDelete
The blooming trees are wonderful. I really like crabapples but never owned one. My redbud will be a big tree in ten years.ReplyDelete
