Purple leaf sand cherry tree. This tree doesn’t get as much leaves or flowers as I think it should. Probably because it has been planted under large pine trees and doesn’t receive enough sun. Still pretty when in bloom, and the leaf colour is stunning.
Cherry blossom tree. My favourite tree in our yard. It’s right beside the garage/driveway and when the wind blows the flowers off, our vehicles look as though we drove through confetti throwers at a wedding.
Apple blossom tree. This tree produces macintosh apples in abundance. I must have made 8 apple pies last fall and still had to clean up a large pile in early winter as we didn’t get around to using them all. It was a shame to have those delicious apples wasted. Apple sauce seems the way to go with any left over apples this year. These flowers are a lovely white with slight streaks of pink.
