The flowering quince has more red buds than it's ever had.
It blooms on old wood so I don't cut it back except to trim some of the branches that are in the way.
Early evening isn't the best time to take pictures, but I like the way the background came out so dark. Don't know how or why, though.
I saw several bushes in bloom as Sarah and I were out and about in Denver this weekend. Lots of blossoms on the ones that are protected in the city.
This tree is next door to Sarah. Have no idea what kind of tree it is.
The flowers are not nearly this pink--more of a pale orchid color and very small and lacy looking.
Most of the trees I've seen like this are always in town. Wish I knew what it was. The bark seems to be darker than most trees. It is not peach, pear, cherry, apple, or flowering almond. There doesn't seem to be any sort of fruit later in the season, either.
I'm linking to Today's Flowers, so enjoy!
