Spring flowering of trees

Spring flowering of trees

Just after winter, when the warmth is felt, the trees are adorned with their flowery dresses. It is a privileged moment, fleeting and ephemeral, which lets imagine, for the fruit trees, the harvest to come and the jams to make.

Spring flowering of apricot trees


J-F. Mahé ** Apricot tree ** The flowering of the apricot tree is particularly decorative and abundant. From February, it is one of the first fruit trees to flower, which makes it particularly sensitive to the weather, a late frost that can seriously compromise future harvests. The apricot tree likes rather warm places and sheltered from the wind where it will thrive, but its cultivation is possible north of the Loire.

Spring flowering of peach trees


J-F. Mahé ** Peach ** Among the fruit trees, the peach is in doubt the one whose flowering is the most colorful. Its pink flowers, carried by bare and dark branches, offer a spectacle of rare beauty! In Chinese culture, the peach blossom is among the most celebrated. It represents luck in love.

Spring flowering of cherry trees


J-F. Mahé ** Cherry tree ** The cherry tree bears white flowers, joined in pairs or in real bouquets appearing before the foliage. There are so-called ornamental varieties cultivated for their flowering - pink or white double flowers - which are frequently encountered in cities and gardens.

Spring flowering of forsythia trees


J-F. Mahé ** Forsythia ** This decorative shrub is distinguished by a particularly abundant and lively flowering. The forsythia forms bouquets of an incandescent yellow, as well in the hedges as in the parks and gardens where it can be found in hedge or in the form of isolated subject.

Spring flowering of ornamental apple trees


J-F. Mahé ** Ornamental apple tree ** There are many varieties of ornamental apple trees. These shrubs are prized both for the spectacle of their flowering and for their fruiting. Arrived in the fall, they cover themselves with miniature apples that brighten up the winter and delight the birds.

Spring flowering of pear trees


J-F. Mahé ** Pear tree ** The pear tree is distinguished by white flowers with pink stamens, one of the ways to distinguish them from those of the cherry tree which they are very close to.

Spring flowering of hawthorn trees


J-F. Mahé ** Hawthorn ** Hawthorn is found less in gardens than in hedgerow hedges where our ancestors (or even the birds by sowing seeds?) Planted them for us. The hawthorn is marked by a powerful and pleasant odor which contrasts with the discretion of its flowers. It also wants to be fierce and protective thanks to its thorny branches which work wonderfully in hedges.

Spring flowering of Japanese quince trees


J-F. Mahé ** Japanese quince ** How to sum up the charm of the Japanese quince, also called Japanese apple tree? Its pink, even red and white flowers, depending on the variety, bloom in bouquets on the still bare branches. The Japanese quince is particularly elegant as an isolated subject. In a hedge, next to a forsythia, it will bring maximum cheerfulness on cool spring days. Once the flowering is over, beware of its fruits which are not edible raw, but allow delicious jams once cooked.
