A few weeks of flowering…

We planted this tree in the fall of 2013- we had been looking for this variety all summer when a spindly little one appeared to E in a late season sale at Home Depot. We weren’t home to see it flower last spring, and it really put on a show for us this year.
The central branch is about the size of the entire tree when we brought it home back in the day.
The blooms don’t have a scent, but they still seem tasty.
Kitty station is a flower-power seat. Not one goldfinch at the feeder yet this season. They are usually around through the winter, but have been scarce since the starvation mass-die-off during their migration last summer.
The lilacs hit a growth spurt a few years back, and have kept coming back strong. The whole back yard is perfumed.
The crabapple tree is blooming as well.
Crabapple blooms. They don’t last long!
Nora takes the shady spot on the trail.
These were the last tulips up, emerging after nearly all the others were gone. A 91 degree May Day burned them off.
Nora and WeeOne are beasty-besties.
