I posted "Favorite Things - Flowering Trees," while my crabapple trees were just budding out. Here they are, in full bloom.
These are the "Prairie Fire" variety, a gorgeous deep pink bloom. I saw some of them at the Missouri Botanical Gardens, and I looked for that variety, in particular. My mom and I planted five of these around the perimeter of the yard, in 2001. They were little saplings at that time.
