Flowering Crabapple for Ruby Tuesday

Above, a Savannah Sparrow perched in the Flowering Crabapple tree.

We have three of these beautiful trees in our yard. We plant trees for beauty and as a source of food for birds, Our Russian Mountain Ash with its beautiful red berries in the fall is a diner's paradise for the birds and the flowering crab i s a feast for one's eyes. Our Lilacs are in bloom right now and usually they host a multitude of Swallowtail butterflies, not yet though this year.

The sparrow on the crabapple is a fabulous photo! "Crab" is such a funny name for such beauty.

What a beautiful photo that sparrow makes with the crabapple blooms! I'm amazed at how much behind our flowering season yours is. I tend to forget how much further north you are!

Mery. I couldn't believe it a longwhile ago when you had posted pictures of LILACS in bloom!
There is definitely a noticeable seasonal difference between here and there!
