Today's Flowers #92: May in the Garden of Cape Cod

I usually come back to the Cape Cod a bit later in the May, thus I missed many of the flowers that bloom during the late April and early May season.

This is our Japanese Crab Apple (Malus floribunda).  We have two of them, I especially chose this variety since it has a red flowering bud and white flowers.

The tree were really in full bloom when I arrived back home last weekend.  I could only find a few red flowering buds.

Here is one of the fragrant viburnum.  It has showy white clusters of flowers and delicious fragrance.  I have never seen it flowered before, I always came back too late.

Here is the detail of its tiny flowers.  We have installed drip watering system for all the trees and shrubs last year.  They seems to be extra happy this spring.

This is our pink Kwanzan Cherry.  I showed our Yoshino Cherry in our April 25 blog.  Its flower is now completely finished.  The pink Kwanzan Cherry flowers much latter, last week was its prime.  It has double flowers.  I also have never seen it blooms before.

Lovely flowers! I am having trouble deciding on a favourite as they are all so wonderful. I had not realized that the buds of a tree could be red while the flowers were white...

All so delicate and all very beautiful. I can't decide on a favorite either. Thanks for sharing and Happy Mother's Day!

A friend just recommended me to plant Viburnum. Hers just started to bloom here in NJ and filled her yard with fragrance. I am glad to see what it looks like on your blog.
