Today's Flowers, Crab Apple






















The Japanese flowering cherry and the crab apple are so magnificent that I am always sorry not to be able to take proper photos of them. Last year they bloomed in mid-April. They were then also absolutely stunning! I hope that my Australian daughter, who is coming this week Wednesday with her family, will still see their beauty.

Patty and I worked on our crabapple tree in front. It was incorporated into the new landscape last year and needed to have the sprouts trimmed back. We did that.
Your tree is very pretty. I like the color of the blossoms. Our tree has almost white blossoms.

Your flowering cherry photos are really gorgeous. Thanks for these. And the crap apples--amazing that something with such a moody name can be so beautiful.

Very pretty. I love those trees. We planted one at our old house when our daughter was born. Isn't it wonderful to have flowers to show off now instead of ice and snow...

I forgot to tell you yesterday so came back to thank you for visiting my sendai-shi.blogspot.com blog and commenting on the simple times.

But yesterday I wanted to tell you when I was here but forgot about showing you my crabapple tree in bloom.

You can see it here.

On my Flickr page. I also recommended that kind of tree to Kay for their home in Hawaii.

I love photos of flowers, and these are just lovely. The color of these blossoms are such a lovely pink, one of my favorite colors.

Mirage said...

Sakura! my favorite flowers! I featured them last week too...and I envy that you have one in your yard (is that right?)

Anna, Japan said...

There are almost all gone now in our part...beautiful shades!

Arkansas Patti said...

I too hope they blooms stay for your daughter. Your photos are lovely but the real thing would be best.
As children we ate those tart little apples and often were rewarded with a belly ache but it didn't stop us.

Et comme on dit en Français: vous voyez "la vie en rose"!
Mon cerisier du japon a également fleuri, actuellement, ses pétales forment un épais tapis sur le sol .

I had a specific kind of Crab Apple that I would like to have and found it 6 years ago in Walmart. After six years, it is still very small. Nothing like yours. I hope I will see them blooming this weekend when I will be back to the Cape. Hope you will have a good time with your daughter. I am having a marvelous and business with my daughter's family this past two weeks.
