Pink Crabapple Tree

cr2

cr3The pink flowering crabapple tree is gorgeous!  Like a huge bouquet of fragrant blooms.  Last year it had no flowers at all.  I suspect the winter was too cold because the forsythia and the dogwood didn’t bloom last year either.

I wish everyone could stand beside this tree.  The scent is reminiscent of grape soda.  On a sunny day the whole yard is filled with its aroma.  The bees go crazy for the flowers, buzzing amid the petals in the hundreds. Butterflies and hummingbirds also visit the crab tree.

I planted a companion for this tree, just a three-foot tall single stemmed whip right now.  But, it is getting leaves and if all goes well, one day it will join the other in an intoxicating spring show.cr1
