This is a Crabapple Tree.   The blooms are just exquisite.  A very delicate warm pink.  My late sister who was a painter always called this shade of pink “Degas Pink”.   An apt description I think.  It took a lot of patience to get this shot.  The tree is located at the entrance of the farm and the wind is always quite fierce there.  Not exactly conducive to photography.  I’d been waiting for days for the wind to subside but the blooms are beginning to drop so it was now or never.  You take what you can get.  See you next time on most of this same site.

  1. Nice John 🙂

    Here in Portland we’re having an odd Spring – late in some ways – our Camelias were late and are still blooming. Our Daphne Odora (the most wonderful fragrance…) bloomed on time in the winter – but iinstead of being long-gone now is actually continuing to grow new blooms! Add in the latest-ever measurable snow, the wettest March, and a general water-logged-ness, I’m not sure wxactly WHAT season it is 🙂

  2. I feel your oddness! We really didn’t have a Winter. We hit 80 degrees in early March. The Fosythia, Periwinkle, Azaleas, Quince, Daffodils…you name it….all bloomed in early February. You’d think the Camellias would all drop their blooms but several are still putting out buds. Crazy!
