Last weekend we met up with parents in Pennsylvania to do a little antiquing in Kutztown and Adamstown. The top three images are of a road (very close to the Rodale Institute) which is lined with crabapple trees. As you can see they were in full bloom. What I wouldn't give to live on a street lined with flowering crabapples! The bottom four photos are of our flowering Redbud tree on our terrace in Brooklyn. I planted this tree maybe 5 or 6 years ago, and now it is quite tall. The flowers last only a couple of weeks which is way to short for me, but well appreciated.
