Crabapples have the most beautiful blooms of all, IMHO.

First Rose of 2002
This is from a McCartney rose bush that I bought at the end of the season a few years back. It grows to about ten feet, maybe more, and decadently blooms from May until November! This photo was taken with the Olympus E-100 RS.
The Last Rose Of Summer
Sooo soft. One of my last McCartney roses for the year 2003.
The Last Rose of Sharon, 2004
Pretty On Blue
I played around with this in Photoshop to make it a little more interesting. The leaves on this plant are less than one half inch in diameter.
Or perhaps I should call it "Barely Pink Clematis".
My beautiful, beautiful peonies. These flowers are ridiculously easy to grow!
I love my peonies as much as my roses. Well, I think I love them more. Can you tell that pink is my favorite color?
