My flowering crabapple tree (Malus floribunda) is in bloom again. Every year this tree reserves a two-week period when it becomes the center of interest in my yard. During this time the tree is an explosion of pink inflorescence that attracts so many pollinators. From a close distance one could hear the buzzing of bees all over the pink canopy of the tree.
Profuse flowers come in succession which makes this tree and important pollenizer for the 'Fuji' apple which blooms about ten days later.
Flowers at different stages on the same branch.
