|After the freeze, the crabapple still blooms.|
|Flowering Plum, Prunus mume, has an exquisite bloom.|
So how did we do? Better than expected, that's for sure. It's like a second spring-- an unexpected gift--when what you thought was lost, is not and you can enjoy the flush of flowers in all their glory after all.
|It would be a shame to go a year without seeing this. So glad our crabapple tree continues to bloom.|
|The flowering almond, Prunus triloba, is often one the first bushes to bloom.|
|Each spring our town fills with clouds of white flowers. Everyone loves their Bradford Pears--in the spring, anyway. Some have been replaced with more hardy varieties. Bradfords tend to break in the ice and wind.|
|What a privilege to live where the skies are such a brilliant blue.|
|The forsythia blooms are often an early sign of spring.|
