Malus floribunda & purpurea - the Crab Apple
We have 3 crab apple trees growing, one floribunda and two purpurea
both are just coming into bloom today, so I put them together
to photograph them for this shot. The floribunda is a Japanese crab
and the purpurea is most probably from China.
Matthiola incana - Stocks
Why a sweet smelling flower has such a cumbersome name I have no idea!
Called "Stocks" where we live, double or single blooms up a spike with
the sweetest perfume that says "Spring"!!!
