Five in one!!

It's not a great time to be in Boston in some ways.

The trees are yet to fully leaf up and everything looks a bit bare to be honest.

But it's the perfect time to look at Crabapples (Malus sp.) because you get:

a) scarlet (flower buds that haven't opened yet)
b) pale pink (the young flowers)
c) white (the mature flowers)
b) green (the new leaves)
e) plum (the "apples" - see second picture)

Together, it's a great effect.
