I’m borrowing an acronym from Gail at Clay and Limestone — she has PPPP (Practically Perfect Pink Phlox) and through my bedroom window, I’m looking at PPPPP! A Profusion of Practically Perfect Pink Petals! The crabapple tree has a flush of gorgeous, raspberry-pink blooms with lots of buds yet to open.
Given that the poor tree has never been fertilized, pruned, or otherwise tended to, it’s always a wonderful surprise when it explodes with colour each spring. As the buds all fully open, I’ll take a photo of some of the prettiest blossoms, but for now, I just thought I’d share the view. :)
