Yesterday we had a lovely 80f day and my little lollipop crabapple tree has popped into full bloom. It sits at the corner of my cottage garden and closely follows the tulips for bloom time. At the moment is not only loaded with white blossoms with a heavenly fragrance, it is loaded with the buzz of honey bees. I snapped these pics hoping to capture the bees hard at work....but they seemed to move on faster than I.
This tree actually gets its leaves first then the blossoms
in the pic above I did capture one bee....can you find him...
After blooming, tiny crabapples form, and hang like upside down "lollipops". This will be a real treat for the birds, they completely clean the tree by fall.
