May 11

This flowering crab apple tree is in our front yard. It flowers every spring, but some years we've threatened to replace it because it has had very few flowers. This year it is loaded with flowers and looks just beautiful!

This is a lovely picture of your beautiful front yard. A real piece of Americana with the crabapple tree in bloom with the flag.

WOW, that is a beautiful tree!! and I love your american flag too. Our trees bloomed so pretty last year. They bloomed this year, but not near as pretty as last year.
Great great photo, Mari!!

What a beautiful tree! I love the color.

Your home and your area are so pretty. Tulsa has a lot of the flowering Bradford Pears and Red Buds amd Dogwords. Because we are south of you the blooms are now all gone :o(

That's very beautiful! Do you have a video-cam? I'd love for you to video your yard because the snapshots show that it must be very beautiful.

We have a flowering crabapple tree in our front yard also. It bloomed about a month ago.
